"Shoshone-Bannock" is the name of a Native American tribal community of Idaho,
located on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation.
The Shoshone-Bannock tribe was formed by the
merging together of Northern Shoshone and Bannock allies during the 19th century.
The Shoshone-Bannock Indians are English speakers today, but the Shoshone and Bannock
languages are also still spoken by some elders, and there are young Shoshone-Bannock people working to
learn their ancestral languages again.
