BOISE, ID—The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes will emphasize culture and language at their new charter school in Idaho.

The Chief Tahgee Elementary Academy will open in the fall. It’s named in honor of Chief Tahgee, a Bannock leader who secured land, hunting and grazing rights for his people.

The tribe hopes to continue that legacy at the new school. “I think that the tribe is reclaiming their birthright, reclaiming their culture and heritage in a modern setting,” Pete Lipovac, who served on the charter school board, told KPVI-TV.
