College of Western Idaho (CWI) Anthropology Club, School of Arts and Humanities, School of Social Sciences and Public Affairs, and Inclusive Excellence Committee are hosting former Chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, Darren Parry, in an evening of remembrance on Wednesday, Feb. 8.
Parry will share about the massacre that took place at the Northwestern Shoshone winter village, Boa Ogoi, on Jan. 29, 1863. The Bear River Massacre, as it is known today, became the largest massacre of Native Americans in the West.
Following in his ancestors’ footsteps, Parry will share how this tragedy illuminates the resiliency, strength, and cultural endurance of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation.
