TIERRA is TRADITION



Fort Hall Casino, Where Winning is Tradition! Well, I don't know how true that is, but... A recent trip to Idaho by a family member scored me some pretty cool dirt! Fort Hall Casino is located just North of Pocatello Idaho. We travel quite often to Idaho to follow our favorite baseball team, however, the only gamble we want to take is getting to the field less than an hour before game time. The most interesting thing about the casino is that it is an enterprise of the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Tribes. I imagine that Native Americans saw a LOT of dirt in their travels over the years. Anyone who has watched the movie Dances With Wolves with Kevin Costner can attest to that. It sure makes me wonder if any other tribes walked across this same dirt that I have now added to the collection. Hmmm...

I was going to ask you for an address to which I could send said dirt. Sometimes it helps to just scroll to the bottom of the page, doesn't it?
