Beneficial economic impacts of tribal activities

A 2010 University of Idaho study demonstrates that the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, located in southern Idaho, add 4,097 jobs and about $331 million in revenue annually to the state economy. The study focuses on the five Indian tribes located in Idaho.

Steven Peterson, a research economist and instructor for the Department of Business at the University of Idaho, says the contribution of tribes on the state economy isn't well understood. He wants to inform the general public of just how important tribal governments and economies are in bolstering the state's output.
