MT Department of Commerce Recruiting for New Tribal Tourism Position

HELENA, Mont. – The Department of Commerce is expanding its program to develop and promote authentic and culturally appropriate tourism in Montana’s Indian Country by creating a new Tribal Tourism Officer position.

Although Commerce already supports tribal tourism through its Office of Indian Country Economic Development, this is the first time it will be dedicating a full-time employee to it.

“Tourism is one of Montana’s leading industries and an economic driver for communities across the state,” said Commerce Director Pam Haxby-Cote. “Respectful development and promotion of tribal tourism experiences can help Montana’s Indian Country to grow its share of that impact.”

An estimated 12.5 million visitors from out of state added $3.3 billion to Montana’s economy in 2017, and the market for tribal tourism already exists. In an October 2017 national survey of leisure travelers, 82 percent said they would be interested in exploring sites and experiences related to Native American culture and history.

During the 2017 regular session of the Montana Legislature, Senate Bill 309 created and funded a new Indian Country tourism region administered by the State Tribal Economic Development Commission.

The new position’s key areas of responsibility will include tourism marketing, visitor orientation, and the development of tourism products, services and facilities. The successful candidate will be responsible for strategic vision and planning and collaboration with local/tribal governments and tourism partners.

Casting Call – Three Roles in Short Film

A short film shooting in the Bozeman area this summer, “Willow Creek Road,” is seeking the following roles.


Ruth (30), a lonely housewife in rural Belgrade, Montana, becomes obsessed with her neighbor Joey (40), a seemingly neglectful, single mother. When Joey fails to pick her kids up after school one day, a painful secret propels Ruth to intervene.  She slowly assumes the responsibilities of a mother as she takes the kids home and tends to their needs. The two women must face each other, and ultimately themselves, when Joey catches Ruth trespassing. Willow Creek Road explores the complex inner lives of these two women as a mirror to the external character of Montana itself: vast big skies, stretches of winding road, endless plains and majestic mountains.


TOM – (40’s), dutiful career man. Works long hours as a Surgeon. Loves his wife Ruth but is feeling the strain of their childless marriage.

LILLY – (age 9-10) head of the household during her mom Joey’s long working hours. Serious and very responsible, Lilly had to grow up fast. Looks after her younger brother Sam (6) when her Mom’s not home. An old soul.

SAM – (age 5-6) the baby of the family. Raised by a single working Mom, and quite often his 10 yr old sister, Lily. Playful and free, with limitless energy. Unhinged, but also seeks love and affection.

Please send a headshot (or recent picture) and resume (or biography for the kids) to: Selected applicants will receive instructions on how to self-submit a taped audition. No need to travel, as we’re casting from NYC.
