Land Use Department.

The Fort Hall Reservation was set aside, pursuant to treaty with the United States, as a home in perpetuity for the members of The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes. The lands and natural resources within the outer confines of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation are important because it directly contributes to the peace, safety, morals and general welfare for all Reservation residents. The Tribal Land Use Department oversees and administers the use and control of Reservation lands.

Our Thoughts on Climate Change.

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are already experiencing the impacts of climate change on their natural resources, landscapes, and people. By engaging in efforts to identify adaptation strategies and actions to minimize the negative effects of climate change, the Tribes have demonstrated their continued commitment to protecting their vital natural resources. The Tribes will continue to implement projects across landscapes in the near term and utilize the information in this report to plan long-term strategies and projects to build resilience. These efforts, will help ensure that culturally significant natural resources are preserved for future generations.
