Message from Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Fish & Game

ATTENTION TRIBAL MEMBERS —

The Tribes Fish and Game Enforcement would like to send out a reminder that shed antler hunting does not start until May 1, 2020. This date has been passed by the Fish and Game Commission and can be found in the Big Game Regulations. Any collecting of antlers before this date could result in a citation.

We would also like to remind Tribal Members, pursuant to the Big Game Regulations, antlers or heads, including dead-heads sold by Tribal Members is unlawful and could result in a citation. Antlers can only be sold if they are turned into a form of artwork.

Remember, as the winter has come to a close, Elk, Deer and Moose need the last of their winter storage to make it through until the mountains open up enough for them to get back to their spring and summer habitats.

We need the membership to be aware not to cause undo stress to these animals. Many of the females are carrying their unborn calves and fawns, they need this vital energy to carry them to term.

On another note, we would like to remind the Membership when in the back country and the bottoms area to be mindful of packing out what you pack in. We have received several complaints of littering, unauthorized dumping and graffiti.

Please respect our reservation lands, waters and landmarks. If you have information concerning violations, please feel free to contact the Fish and Game Office at 208-236-1137 or the Police Department at 208-238-4000.

Fish and Game Enforcement staff is dedicated to protecting these areas and resources for the membership and future generations, especially in the times we are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prayers to you all that you stay safe and in good health, Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Fort Hall Reservation Stay-At-Home Order Guidance:

The Order for the Fort Hall Reservation is intended to fight the community spread of the coronavirus and to keep our people healthy. The State of Idaho has already issued their orders to self-isolate and the Tribes seek to seamlessly protect our Tribal members and residents along with our neighbors. This is effective from Thursday, March 26, 2020 to Friday, April 17, 2020.

The Order is to keep people home to help avoid the spread the virus. What can I do under this Stay at Home Order:

• Go grocery shopping, but remember the reduced hours at the local grocery stores.

• Go to medical appointments and the pharmacy

• Get take-out food, delivery, or drive through food from local restaurants

• Getting gasoline at the gas stations

• Go outdoors (hiking, biking, etc) but only if you are not sick or have any symptoms and social distancing recommendations are strictly followed. Good recommendations are to follow the State of Idaho’s guidelines for outdoor activities.

• Go down to Bottoms or in the mountains within the boundaries of the Fort Hall Reservation, but only if social distancing practices are strictly followed

• Check on family members, elders, or other people in need of assistance.

• You are encouraged to stay at your home, but you can go outdoors

• You are allowed to travel within the local areas only

WHAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO:
• Socialize in groups larger than 10 people

• Visit or have family dinners if larger than 10 people

• Go to work, unless you are essential staff or support staff for essential staff

• Travel out of the local area

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 27, 2020

SHOSHONE-BANNOCK TRIBES ISSUE STAY-AT-HOME ORDER FOR FORT HALL RESERVATION RESIDENTS

Fort Hall- The Fort Hall Business Council (Council) took action late Thursday, March 26, 2020 to approve a resolution that authorizes a reservation-wide stay at home order for all tribal members and residents of the Fort Hall Reservation. This unprecedented effort is to protect the community against the COVID-19 virus. This order is effective immediately, and will remain in effect until April 17th, or until otherwise modified by the Council resolution. The Resolution mirrors the Governor’s order to stay at home for all Idahoans.

The Tribes are addressing an unprecedented health situation with the COVID-19 virus and its rapidly spreading cases throughout the world, the United States and the State of Idaho.

Chairman Ladd Edmo states, “the COVID-19 is extremely contagious, and requires that the Tribes take new and restrictive measures to protect our people.” Edmo further adds, “This effort is done to protect the vulnerable people of our community, our elders who are the last Bannock and Shoshone speakers, and our people with compromised health and medical concerns.”

The Council understands that residents may need to travel locally for essential services. Those essential services would include: medical appointments, pharmacies, grocery shopping, banks, ranching, farming, and emergency trips to check on extended family.

The Tribes are in the midst of a global pandemic that is now on the verge of reaching, if it has not already, the Fort Hall Reservation, and the Council urges everyone to use their common sense if they choose to leave home. The Council appreciate all essential staff that have been working diligently to keep government operations open during this time and the Tribes pray for the well being of all.

Information for Fort Hall residents is available on the Tribes website, www.sbtribes.com and/or Tribes official page, Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.

Message from our Fort Hall Indian Health Service (IHS) ‘Not-Soo-Gah-Nee’ 🏥

Posted Monday, March 23, 2020

Fort Hall- The Indian Health Service remains committed to coordinating a comprehensive public health response. CDC guidance continues to be the benchmark reference for our healthcare providers, facilities, and communities. In the past few days, President Trump, Vice President Pence, and members of the Coronavirus Task Force have announced a series of sweeping new recommendations and regulatory changes to prevent further spread of COVID-19, and to conserve precious medical resources.

Consistent with updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, American Dental Association (ADA) and American Chemical Society (ACS) recommendations, many Indian Health Service facilities have already implemented procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to preserve resources. The Not-Tsoo Gah-nee Indian Health Center will do the following starting today,March 23, 2020:

1. Maximize the use of telephone visits and telemedicine to minimize potential exposure to most higher risk chronic disease or elderly patients

2. Postpone elective appointments

3. Limit dental and optometry scope
of service to emergency procedures only

4. Pharmacy will provide early refills, up to 60 days’ supply of chronic medications (controlled substances will be limited to 30 days’ supply) and maximize the use of mail order and other methods for obtaining refills

5. One entry point for patients, visitors and staff to screen for COVID-19 symptoms

These new steps will help us protect our employees and their families and will protect our ability to meet our mission.

Thank you 🙏🏾

Does anyone know if Edgar Jackson is still alive? I was going thru a storage chest of things that were my late husbands (he died March 1, 1999) and found this news article and photo of one of his buckles. This article about Edgar Jackson was in the Idaho State Journal on Sunday, January 11,1998. This is a photo of Soren’s favorite belt buckle that Edgar made. I believe he bought it in 1984. I gave the buckle to Soren’s son from his first marriage after his death.

Just read the article about removing the Native Indian mascot symbols from all Idaho schools. Help me understand this,These names are in no way meant to be racist or insulting. They were meant to commemorate and honor our Native American Indians, names that note bravery, skill, history and strength. We love and honor our school mascots. This is nonsense. Now will they be spoken of only in the context of gambling casinos and cheap cigarettes? How do you turn something good into something bad? Oh , it's called political correctness. We can't celebrate any more with any minority, or we're accused of ' appropriating' their culture. How sad. For everyone. Separate us more, that seldom works well now does it? (and I feel can speak, my own children are 1/8 Native American, and they agree with me)
Hello neighbors. As many of you know, Teton Valley is debating changing the High School Mascot. A new page has been created, and the admin. of it wants more input from Native Americans. She is adamant about keeping it civil and will boot anyone being rude or disrespectful. I am not much of one for Facebook debate, but wanted to share this with you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2417522928527966/?fref=nf
Mark One Wolf who supported Driggs Redskins: Herrod says that he's traced the Yancey family back a few generations and finds lots of African-American blood and some Asian, but no native blood and no branch on the family tree that ever got anywhere near any Indian reservation. Yancey's parents are both listed as alumni of Spingarn High School in Washington D.C., located right across Benning Road NE from the local NFL team's former home, RFK Stadium. “For all that he says he is, there is not one single tribe that claims him,” Herrod says. “Nobody knows who he is. Everything we've found about him and his parents indicates that they identify as African American. As far as I can tell, I think he's read a lot about Indians, but that doesn't make him an Indian.”
Hetchetu Alo.☀ I do most honorably ask of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Reservation, that I may come to reside on Reservation territories with the acceptance and permission of Tribal Authority and Authorities. I will, in every way, trade full work schedule as an able bodied man, for a place to stay, with the learned and peaceful peoples of the Fort Hall Reservation, and of myself. Thank you, for hearing my prayer and request. Thank you, that I may be received by those, of the Great Spirit, Wankan Tanka, that is forever blessed, Creator of the Heavens Above, and with Medicine for All of the Earth, Community of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. Thank You, Elders and all Tribesmen. Kent Norton Salisbury Idaho Falls, IDAHO
