Shoshone-Bannock Agaidika Gathering
August 19, 2023
Each year the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes visit the Sacajawea Center and the Salmon and Lemhi Valleys to commemorate their ancestors and connect their youth to their homeland. The main event of the gathering happens on Saturday and includes an early morning breakfast and walk/run along Agency Creek between Tendoy, ID and Lemhi Pass. After the walk/run, in the late afternoon, the tribe holds a singing and dancing exhibition at the Sacajawea Center amphitheater as well as a salmon and buffalo feast.
The tribe invites the local community and the visiting public to join them for all or part of their gathering. This year marks the 115th Agaidika Gathering, as 1907 was the year the Agaidika were forced to leave their reservation here in the Lemhi Valley to go to the reservation at Fort Hall.
