The documentary, “Idaho’s Forgotten War” profiles the courage and faith of 67 Idaho Kootenai people and the extraordinary Kootenai woman, Amy Trice, who declared war on the United States government in 1974 to save her people. Robbed of their lands, culture, and hunting rights, the Kootenai people moved from place to place within a small isolated town called Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Far away from a way of life that no longer existed, the Kootenai people faced complete annihilation. By 1974, the Kootenai people experienced extreme poverty. Homes given to the Kootenai’s by the Federal Government were decaying with broken windows and holes in the roof, providing minimal shelter to their owners. When a Tribal Elder freezes to death on a cold winter’s day inside his unheated home, Amy and her people fear it is only a matter of time before their entire Tribe disappears.
