Our newest offering in this genre is . Dr. Nicholas Vrooman, author of "The Whole Country was ... 'One Robe'": The Little Shell Tribe's America, created the PowerPoint based on a presentation he gave to teachers attending our Richest Hills workshop in 2015. The high school/college level presentation complements the primary-source based lesson plan "Montana's Landless Indians and the Assimilation Era of Federal Indian Policy: A Case of Contradiction," created for us by Laura Ferguson. (Note, too, that the Little Shell's fight for federal recognition continues. See, for example, this recent article in the Great Falls Tribune.)
Another upper level PowerPoint is "Butte's Industrial Landscape," created by Professor Fred Quivik for the same audience of teachers but also adaptable to high school.
