PABLO, Mont. (AP) — Montana's Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes are taking a unique approach to raising awareness of the coronavirus pandemic among their youngest members. Tribal leaders on the Flathead Reservation in northwestern Montana are soliciting the help of local musicians to convince young people to adhere to COVID-19 safety precautions. Singer Artie Mendoza III, known by the name KiidTruth, released the campaign's first song with lyrics that urge kids to wash their hands, wear a mask, and stay six feet apart.
