  • Educational plaques added to Idaho’s lynching murals

    By Betsy Z. Russell

    Murals depicting white settlers accosting and then hanging a shirtless Native American man have been displayed openly in Idaho’s temporary Statehouse for the past year, with a note from the state Historical Society promising that interpretation of the murals is “forthcoming.”

    Now, after a year and a half of negotiation, the state and Idaho’s five tribes have agreed on wording for interpretive plaques, which tell of the bloody clashes between the cultures that occurred as white settlers took over the Boise Valley a century ago. The plaques will go up before this year’s legislative session.
