New Film: Idaho's Forgotten War

In 1974 the Kutenai Tribe of Idaho declared war against the United states government in a dramatic bid to force the government to live up to its treaty obligations. Idaho's Forgotten War is a film on the topic by Sonya Rosario. It looks fascinating. Here is the trailer:

Idaho's Forgotten War will premiere Thursday, March 18th at Boise State University, Student Union Bldg, Simplot D at 6:30 p.m. I hope that it will be available online or by DVD soon.

Yes, this is indeed an excellent documentary. The Idaho Humanities Council recently awarded a grant to the Women of Color Alliance in Boise to shorten the film somewhat so that it can be shown on Idaho Public Television.

Chris, I am jealous that you have had the opportunity to see it. I'll keep an eye out for the TV broadcast, we get Idaho public TV on the Spokane cable channels.
