Bannock people • Bannock people

The Bannock tribe could be found mainly along the stretch of the Snake River in Idaho. Buffalo hunting was at the center of their semi-nomadic lives, although they also harvested fruits and feasted on salmon during the summer months. Sadly, though, the 1878 Bannock War ended with the slaughter of around 140 warriors. They’ve since dwindled in number, too. Incredibly, the 2010 U.S. census found only 89 people who identified as Bannock. Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons
