November 2019 marks the 45th year of Idaho’s Forgotten War, when the Kootenai People declared war on the United States of America.
This Friday, at 6pm at the Boundary County Museum, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, the Museum, and the Boundary County Human Rights Taskforce will be showing the documentary of “Idaho’s Forgotten War” to celebrate our Native Heritage, and open a conversation about our history and our local tribe.
The documentary “Idaho’s Forgotten War,” profiles the courage and faith of 67 Idaho Kootenai people and the extraordinary Kootenai woman, Amy Trice, who declared war on the United States government in 1974, to save her people. Robbed of their land, culture, and hunting rights, the Kootenai people moved from place to place, within a small, isolated place called Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
There will be a Q&A afterward with Tribal Chair, Gary Aiken, Jr.
Join us to honor and learn more about the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho.
Admission is free.
