Long Description:
Kootenai Tribe of Idaho
The Kootenai Tribe of Idaho has lived in their aboriginal homeland of Idaho, Montana and British Columbia for thousands of years.

A unique culture, the Kootenais are known for their distinctive sturgeon-nose canoe and their linguistically isolated language. After refusing to leave their aboriginal lands for a reservation, individual Kootenai Indians obtained allotments in the Bonners Ferry area. Many years of Hardships resulted in a Declaration of War on the United States in 1974 to obtain a land base for the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho. Efforts to broaden that base continue.
