Kalispel Tribal Extension

The WSU Kalispel Tribal Extension Program office is located at the Kalispel Career Training Center north of Cusick, Washington. It is funded by Federally Recognized Tribes Extension Program (FRTEP) grants administered through USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture to establish Extension education programs on the Indian Reservations and Tribal jurisdictions of Federally-Recognized Tribes. The Kalispel Extension office is one of the most recent additions to the national FRTEP list, starting in 2011, and is one of two FRTEP programs in Washington State.

Our projects are guided by a tribal advisory committee. Our focus is on gardening projects with youth and adults, native foods and nutrition (including cooking classes for kids and adults in partnership with WSU Food $ense), developing a 4-H program including STEM activities, horsemanship and archery, and working with the Kalispel Natural Resources Department on forestry, water quality, wildfire and other resource issues.
