FORT HALL, IDAHO — The 2016 Annual Bannock Gathering is scheduled for Monday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 9, 2016 at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel & Event Center in Fort Hall, Idaho. This year’s Gathering will feature “Throughour Clothing, We Remember,” a historical clothing show on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 at 7:00PM in the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel & Event Center.
The annual gathering features a historical show which is a unique runway-style presentation of various styles of dress depicting the Shoshone and Bannock people, including pre-cloth materials. According to historical show coordinator, Yvette Tuell, “It is not limited to traditional regalia but includes all manner of dress, which reflects how our people adopted modern styles of dress and incorporated it into our native culture. We will show men’s clothing styles that reflect warrior, cowboys, and Indian leaders to contemporary dress. Women’s clothing styles will range from sagebrush clothing to early cloth dresses, to boarding school uniforms, shell and buckskin dresses to modern clothing.” The show is intended to share, wear and teach tribal history. The show is open to the public and admission is free. See attached agenda for the two-day gathering.
