The Idaho Museum of Natural History is hosting a free film screening of the documentary Remembering Bear River on January 27th at 6 p.m. at Frazier Hall.
On January 29, 1863, the U.S. Army killed more than 350 Shoshone of the Northwestern Band at the winter village of Boa Ogoi. The film by Phillip Schoen explores the history of the Bear River Massacre and its legacy in Idaho.
The half-hour film will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Schoen and special guests. A reception and hors d’oeuvres to follow at the Idaho Museum of Natural History.
This event is made possible in part by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council*, the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The film originally aired on Idaho Public Television's program Idaho Experience.
