Graduate students Allison Bremmeyer, Jared Chastain and Alicia Woodard presented to the Shoshone-Bannock tribal members at the Madison County Courthouse on July 16, 2016. There was standing room only. The students were invited to give the same presentation at the Bannock Gathering at Fort Hall on August 9, 2016 during the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes’ Annual Festival.
Professor Orlan Svingen wrote: “Written survey responses from tribal members yielded important comments “from the membership” that will play an important role in our future Tendoy Park grant writing plans because their written responses clearly demonstrate our “public consultation” with American Indian people who have an important stake in how Tendoy Park is interpreted in the upcoming years. Sponsored by the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, the City of Virginia City, and the WSU/John and Janet Creighton Seminar and Public History Field School Project, our future grant writing efforts will demonstrate remarkable innovation and collaboration among three distinct but committed stakeholders.”
