BOA OGOI CULTURAL INTERPRETIVE CENTER
Boa Ogoi or Big River in the native Shoshone language is the name of the massacre of more than 400 Shoshone in Southeast Idaho. It was the single largest loss of Native American life in the history of the country. The new Shoshone Cultural Interpretive Center will be built to honor the enduring spirit of the Shoshone people today.
SHOSHONE HISTORY & CULTURE
The history of the Shoshone people in Idaho and Utah is remembered by a rich oral history of the Native ancestors. After American pioneer settlers expanded to the west, the history became intertwined with stories of land, gold, death, and healing.
The Boa Ogoi Cultural & Interpretive Center exists to educate and enlighten visitors about the history of the Northwestern Shoshone Band.
