August 2011, Return of the Boise Valley People

Tribes met in Boise, Idaho, their traditional territories to share and practice their traditions. Now an annual event, it has grown into two locations. With the goal of fundraising to create a cultural center to share the importance of remembering Indigenous ancestors. For the People of the Boise Valley it is very important to return to Eagle Rock (renamed by settlers as Castle Rock) to honor and to pray for their ancestors. Eagle Rock is a place where many Indigenous people’s ancestors were buried.
