Tribes prepare to celebrate Treaty anniversary
An annual grand fireworks show to honor the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Fort Bridger Treaty of 1868 will take place at dusk on Thursday at the Rodeo Grounds in Fort Hall.
There will be free parking on the rodeo grounds for all who would like to participate.
The treaty was signed July 3, 1868, at Fort Bridger, Utah Territory.
It reserved rights for tribal members that include self-government as well as hunting and fishing rights.
“It’s important for our youth to understand the unique self-government this treaty provides and work to protect these rights,” said Randy’L Teton, the Tribes' Public Affairs Manager.
