  • Shoshone-Bannock Tribes join Columbia River accord

    By Rebecca Boone
    Boise, Idaho (AP)

    The eastern Idaho-based Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are joining four tribes in the Columbia River corridor, two states and three federal agencies in an agreement designed to improve fish runs in the Pacific Northwest.

    Though the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes don’t live near the parts of the Columbia, Snake and Salmon rivers where salmon are known to run, they maintain treaty-protected traditional hunting, fishing and gathering rights on unoccupied land outside the Fort Hall Reservation, including parts of the Salmon and Snake River and their tributaries, said Bill Bacon, the tribes’ attorney.
