Fort Hall named Purple Heart Reservation


FORT HALL — The Fort Hall Indian Reservation is the first in the United States to be deemed a Purple Heart Reservation.

A special presentation is planned Wednesday to commemorate and pay tribute to Shoshone-Bannock tribal members who were wounded or killed in service to the country.

“This is a very big deal,” said organizer Miguel Dominic. “We have Purple Heart cities and states, but this is the only reservation.”
