We are through the Primary. Now let’s regroup!
It’s time to vote. Thank you for your Participation
The time has come to make your choice.
The campaign trail has been very informative one. I’ve learned quite a bit from the tribal membership. Days like these teach us much about one another. One of the great lessons I’ve learned (or maybe re-learned) was how passionate our people are.
I have been honored to serve our people for many years under many hats. I am passionate about protecting our elders as well our youth. I’m passionate about protecting our resources and our sovereignty. And I’m passionate about about where we will be as a nation 20 years from now. We have come a long way as a people, and working together there is no limit to how far we can go. I respectfully ask for your vote, to continue to serve our people and help to guide us into the future.
Vote with your heart, vote with your head, vote with conscience, and vote with faith.
Thank you for your participation.

Covering the Reservation!
It was good for the soul to travel all over the reservation these last two weeks, see the last of our beautiful fall and interact with our tribal members at the Candidate Forums. I am appreciative of the opportunity to participate in all the forums – Polson, Mission, Ronan, Arlee, Hot Springs and Elmo – and show how committed I am to our membership. I also want to extend gratitude to Jim and Mignon for all they did to make these forums possible.
Love, Respect and Honesty
I was asked at a Candidate Forum this week, why am I the only incumbent to attend these meetings. My response was really my heart talking. I said I don’t know why the other councilpersons weren’t present and that they would have to ask them that question. I said I can’t speak for them, I can only speak for myself. I’m there at the forum because I care about every tribal member. I respect each and every one of them.
If they want to know who I am and what I’ve shown to stand for – here I am. I honor the opportunity to serve them and the tribes every day. I thanked them for that opportunity.
I respect every tribal member and their right to express their concerns. We may agree or may not, but what is important is to address their concerns, dreams, and goals to the best of my abilities.
First Candidate Forum!
Good Forum last night. Thanks to Jim and Mignon for putting it on. I appreciate being able to give my background and speak about my family and Tribal values.
I asked that I be judged on my own merits and accomplishments and not be lumped in by the general view of the Tribal Council.
I imparted my views on economic development and speak to our need to free ourselves from the federal government budget. We have all the natural resources to put the woodworkers back to work harvesting dead and red timber and a functioning rail system to transport our logs to clean and efficient bio-fuel electric plants.
I shared my experience of running the Tribal Recreation Program that served 500+ Tribal kids with fun, safe, and culturally relevant programs and my desire to do it again.
I spoke of my record of always being willing to listen to Tribal members and their concerns. The audience agreed.
Both the spirit and the feedback were positive. I hope to see more of you at the upcoming forums. As always, ask me directly (on Facebook at stevelozarforcsktcouncil), or on the web at stevelozar.com). Don’t let someone else tell you how to cast your vote.
Montana Historical Society
Good day, I have recently returned from a Friday meeting in Helena. I am the past president of the Montana Historical Society. I am also the first enrolled tribal member to ever serve as president of the society, which was formed in 1865. I was the catalyst for the return of the Sacred Split Horn Bonnet to the Blackfeet and Blackfoot Confederacy. I represent all of Montana’s Indian People and our state’s History Preservation – a job I am very active and committed to!
Hello. I’m Steve Lozar
I invite you to follow me for the next several months as I pass on what I do and why I’ve done it as a representative for the people of the Confederated Salish, Kootenai and Pend’ Oreille peoples of the Flathead Indian Reservation. If you have questions please click on the contact link at the bottom of all pages on my site. I will get back to you as quickly as I am able.
I have been honored to work for the people under many titles for the majority of my life and I look forward to helping solve the issues in our future.
