The Coeur d’Alene Tribe has sent $25,000 to the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes after the Shoshone-Paiutes’ Duck Valley Reservation was hit hard by the Murphy Complex fire on the Idaho-Nevada border, which burned 200 power poles and left the reservation without power. “The Coeur d’Alene Tribal Council stands ready to support members of our Idaho tribal family,” Coeur d’Alene Tribal Chairman Chief Allan said in a statement. “After the community spent a week without power, and after learning about the devastation caused by this massive wildfire, we hope to provide some comfort to those in need.”
