Eastern Idaho is a place less trod."Idaho was site of one of the worst massacres of indigenous peoples"

Tourists instead enjoy Jackson and the parks to the north, but may not see the beauty of the neighboring Gem State.  It’s also home to a sad and forgotten history.

A professor at the University of Utah is sharing the story with the History Channel.  Idaho was site of one of the worst massacres of indigenous peoples.  For decades, the historic record was one of heroism about the U.S. military taking on the violent and angry tribesmen.  The true story emerged very gradually and still is rarely told.

You can read the story here about the infamous attack at Bear River.
