Whose land does it reside upon?
Humans have inhabited the Snake River Plain since at least the end of the last Ice Age, first showing up in the archeological record 12,000- 14,000 years ago. Members of the Shoshone and Bannock tribes and their ancestors had the most contact among native inhabitants with the lava fields of Craters of the Moon. The Shoshone were a branch of the Northern Shoshone that inhabited the upper Columbia River Basin, while the Bannock were a branch of the Northern Paiute. These two groups both occupied the Snake River Plain, intermingled, travelled and hunted together, and otherwise coexisted while speaking slightly different languages.
When was it established?
May 2, 1924
About this park:
Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve has been described as a "weird and scenic" landscape of lava and sagebrush, located in southern Idaho. Most visitors explore the trails, caves, and scenic overlooks along the park's 7-mile loop road, but more opportunities abound in the park's vast wilderness. We invite you to explore this vast ocean of lava flows with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush, where yesterday's volcanic events are likely to continue tomorrow. The Monument contains numerous cultural as well as natural resources.
Why did we choose these colors?
The main photo on the park’s home page was the inspiration for our colorway.
