Learn about the vibrant history & future of the Latino community in Montana. Latinos have a
more than two-centuries-old history in Montana, yet few know about Latino history, culture, or
their economic contributions to the state. From the fur trade to the sugar beet, from our Flathead
cherries to construction, Latinos have had a long and vibrant culture in Montana that continues to
this day. Dr. Bridget Kevane discusses the critical role that current border policies are having on
the community and immigration.

Dr. Bridget Kevane is a professor of Latin American and Latino Studies Program as well as the
director of Liberal Studies at Montana State University. Her research focuses on Latino/a studies,
specifically the literature, culture and history of Latino/a communities in the United States. In
addition to numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, she has written four
books, including her most recent, The Dynamics of Jewish Latino Relationships: Hope and
Caution.
