Idaho: The Land and Its People

Implementation of a permanent exhibition on the role of Native Americans in the history and culture of Idaho.

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 Museum (Museum) in Boise. The State of Idaho is providing funding for the remodel and construction of the expanded Museum building, while the ISHS is raising half the funds for the design, fabrication, and installation of the new exhibits. The ISHS is applying for a $400,000 grant to support the implementation of the new exhibition called Idaho: The Land and Its People. This exhibition includes co-created, accurate and respectful tribal content that is the basis of the tribal interpretations developed for the five new exhibits that comprise Idaho: The Land and Its People. The tribal path interpretive experience described within this proposal reflects this important humanities content about Idaho's five federally recognized tribes, from origins to contemporary times.
