    ShoShone Indian Days

    First, this weekend ushers in the 4th annual Shoshone Indian Days. This is their regular Daily Adventures with a twist. Dancers from the Northwest Band of the Shoshone Nation, the tribe that traditionally lived in this area before being displaced by settlers, will be dancing and interpreting traditional Shoshone life and life ways for guests. Dances and other activities take place all day.

    "This is one of the jewels of the summer in our community," maintained David Sidwell, Program Director at the Heritage Center. "It's a privilege to work with the [Shoshone] tribe throughout the year, and a special treat to have them come and shine during these few days of the summer." The event provides local residents with one of the few times they can view these traditional dances. With crowds much smaller than at powwows and other large events, guests can see the dancers up close and personal, and even interact with them. Admission to the dances is included with the price of admission ($8/adults, $6/children; group discounts available). Daily Adventures admission also includes living history activities at four other venues, as well as pony rides and train rides.
