Organization Name: Shoshone-Bannock Tribes' Native Complete Count Committee
Headquarters: Fort Hall, Idaho
About: The Shoshone-Bannock tribes contribute $400 million annually to the local economy through thriving businesses that include casinos, a conference center, hotel, gift shops, gas stations, and agricultural holdings. The Shoshone-Bannock Tribe's Native Complete Count Committee began meeting in January 2019 and represents all five of the reservation's tribal service districts.
“We’ll stress that the population count is critical for us as a tribal community because we have a need for housing, we have a need for health care, education and transportation, and for apportionment. Our community of citizens needs to be represented.”
– Denell Broncho, head of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes' Native Complete Count Committee
