Shoshone Tribe, Hill AFB share cultural opportunities


Anya Kitterman, Hill Air Force Base Cultural Resource Manager, left, and Patty Timbimboo-Madsen, Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Cultural and Natural Resource Manager, teach tribal children how to make cordage bracelets during an event at Hill AFB, June 21. Such an event provides an opportunity for Hill AFB to partner with a local consulting tribe in bringing a piece of their history and artifacts to them, which are generally inaccessible. In turn, tribal elders share tribal knowledge, which helps Hill AFB gain a better understanding of their concerns and resources.
