Had a very nice card exchange from a man in Washington...he has traveled around Alaska and the NW, picking up some very nice Native cards along the way! This card features the Shoshone-Bannock of Idaho. Today they are a small community of about 5000 tribal members. Historically they lived in a territory located in parts of Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Canada. They hunted, fished, collected wild foods and participated in regional trade but they were impacted by travelers on the Oregon Trail. Their lands were reduced by treaties signed in the 1860s and they lost more in later years.
Its very nice to add cards from this region to my collection and I hope to find more!
