A new plaque has been approved and ordered to replace what the local organization of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers is calling “the inadequate 1932 version on the Bear River Massacre Monument.”

“The Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) are happy to announce that it should come in time for unveiling at the January 29, 2021, Northwestern Shoshone Memorial Service to honor the Indians slain in the 1863 encounter with Colonel Patrick Connor’s California Volunteers. The plaque has been approved by Darren Parry, a past leader of the NW Shoshone tribal council and advocate for his people,” said DUP Company president Alexis Beckstead.
