Winter is a time of healing, giving, and receiving. We have been working tirelessly to share and promote the archive preservation work of The Idaho Mythweaver, and many people have made donations to help us reach our $5,000 matching goal by the end of 2017.
Bob Boeh, executive vice president of Idaho Forest Group, a strong supporter of The Idaho Mythweaver, has delivered the company’s check of $5,000 to Mountain West Bank representative, Josh Anderson, for The Idaho Mythweaver account.
“Tribal culture and history are important parts of all communities throughout our operating area,” said Boeh. “Tribal government to government standing on all federal land management issues makes it important for our company to maintain strong working relationships which address mutual interests. Preserving these tapes and history maintains these working relationships, and is the right thing to do,” said Boeh.
To match the Idaho Forest Group gift, many people gave — $5 to $1,000 — as a named or anonymous donor.
“Everyone’s generosity has made an astonishing difference to our Native Voices campaign”, said Jane Fritz, media director for Idaho Mythweaver.
“Each person is essential to the integrity and strength of our circle of friends of The Idaho Mythweaver Archive.”
In addition to Idaho Forest Group, other major donors were TransEco Services, Margaret Reed Foundation, Sahlin Foundation and Kauffman & Associates, Inc.
