U of I study highlights tribal impacts on economy

FORT HALL – A southern Idaho American Indian tribe adds 4,097 jobs and about $331 million in revenue to the state economy.

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes’ annual contribution is scrutinized in a University of Idaho study that focuses on the state’s five Indian tribes.

The State Journal reports the final study isn’t due out until next spring, but the tribe is already talking up preliminary findings.

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.

Peterson says he wants to inform the general public of just how important Idaho tribes are in bolstering the state’s output.

One finding so far is that the tribes appear to have weathered the recession better than other sectors of the economy.
