Enrollment Committee Mission Statement.
The Fort-Hall Reservation was set aside by Executive Order on June 14, 1867. The Shoshone-Bannock leaders in the Fort Bridger Treaty of July 3, 1868 confirmed the Fort Hall Reservation as the permanent homeland for the Shoshone and Bannock people and their future generations. Accordingly, to ensure the continued existence and integrity of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, as a Tribal Nation, the Enrollment Committee strives to protect and preserve the distinct cultural identity and blood lines of the Tribes by upholding the Shoshone-Bannock Constitution and Enrollment laws, governing enrollment membership eligibility.
