Idaho State Historical Society (Boise, ID 83702-5652)
Janet Gallimore (Project Director: May 2017 to present)

Origins Tribal Stories

The Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) is currently engaged in a multi-year, significant effort to expand and improve its flagship property, the Idaho State Historical Museum (Museum) in Boise. The state of Idaho is responsible for the remodel and construction of the expanded Museum building, while the ISHS is responsible for the design, fabrication and installation of the new exhibits. The ISHS is applying for a $30,000 Chairman’s Grant to support the implementation of one exhibition project called Origins, whose central theme is origins of the unique Idaho landscape, and how Idaho’s peculiar shape came to be formed. This origins concept will include multimedia formats (e.g., a digital stream that acts as a physical and thematic pathway), and animated, storytelling media projections in the Origins Theater, in which the voices of native elders recount the origin stories of each of the five tribes.
