In January, the Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission will be offering a look into a dark moment in East Idaho’s history.
Tuesday, January 17 at 6 p.m. in the Pocatello City Council Chambers, Darren Parry, Vice Chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, will be presenting a talk on the Bear River Massacre that occurred in 1863. Parry is a descendent of Chief Sagwitch, leader of the Northwestern Shoshone in 1863, and he will discuss the circumstances that led up to the massacre as well as a personal account of the massacre passed down by his grandmother, Mae Timbimboo Parry.
