This surge of newcomers isn’t Idaho’s first land rush. That distinction goes to homesteaders proving up more than a century ago. This isn’t the locals first struggle with outsiders either. That burden is carried by Native American tribes going back several centuries. Drawing lines on the land in this territory is a complicated map of successes and failures that started before Idaho became a state.
