X̣est Sx̣lx̣alt Pesyaʔ, Good day everyone - my name is Chaney Bell and I am a member of the Bitterroot Salish tribe of the Flathead Nation. I am married to Echo Brown and have 4 beautiful children Kʷali kʷelu (Patty), Sxʷlekʷs (whirlwind), Pxʷpexʷsšn (red rock), and Max̣e (glacier lily).
My passions are first living a good healthy life and doing my best for my family and community.
I also want to help our youth in what every ways I can to become good, healthy people.
The third thing I hold close to my heart is the revitalization of the Salish language. Our language is so important to the identity of who we are, it is the foundation, the wisdom of who the Salish and Pend d'Oreille people are.
Lemlmtš Pesyaʔ, thanks everyone!
