Fort Hall Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Events in Honor of Veterans Day
The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes take great pride in honoring our tribal armed service veterans for the month of November. The following events is our way of saying “Thank You” to those in our community and surrounding neighbors who have served the United States of America and helped preserve our liberties. The Indian Health Services (I.H.S) center will be hosting a tribute wall in honor of all Veterans and service men for the whole month of November. A wall at the entrance way of I.H.S has always been dedicated to I.H.S staffs who are active corporate officers.

Photos need to be provided to Delphina Gould at the I.H.S front desk. For more information on the wall contact 208-238-5445.
