52nd Annual Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Festival

August 6-9, 2015

Fort Hall powwow grounds


Reeves Nawoosky was the Recreation Director in 1964 and after a successful summer of recreation activities, he scheduled a year end celebration. The Celebration included a Miss Shoshone-Bannock Queen Contest and other activities. The event was popular so a larger event was planned for 1965. Later in the years it has moved down to its current location. The Shoshone Bannock Tribes have been recognized as the best beaders in North America.

Today the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Festival is sponsored the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, which is unique because of the various activities that are in conjunction with the event, which includes: softball tournaments, golf tournaments, rodeos, Indian relay horse racing, art shows, parades, traditional handgame tournaments, indigenous children’s games, community buffalo & salmon feast, fun-run, and much more. 

All events are open to the public to attend and view which some of the events have minimal fees to attend or view which generate revenue to supplement the whole event.  From that time the festival Shoshone-Bannock has grown to its current size. It will continue to grow as the 50th Celebration and beyond.
