Sharing the history of indigenous communities in Idaho

A new exhibit coming to the Idaho State Museum will bring the stories from four indigenous communities to life using videos, games and artifacts.

The hope is that visitors will get a better understanding of the issues that face indigenous communities today and to highlight sustainability and practices that go back generations.

The exhibit “Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science” includes contributions from the five federally recognized tribes in Idaho. Liz Hobson, administrator of the Idaho State Museum and Johanna Jones, with the Office of Indian Education, join Idaho Matters to tell us more.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
