Montana Indian Athletic Hall of Fame
Keeping stories alive. Our Tribal Athletes and the histories behind their accomplishments are honestly the modern-day lore of tribal deeds, of warrior legends! The information we are gathering within the MIAHOF may someday be taught in the history books of our state, but for now, it is the present-day oral interpretations of our people, a beautiful representation of a strong nation. Our youth will be able to look back and see the accomplishments of their family, relatives, and tribes!
The Hall of Fame brings the past to the present, showing the youth and the native communities that we have our own legends among us and for those that have passed, we will restore their memory and accomplishments. It started in 2007 and has since recognized unbelievable individuals and teams. The Hall looks at college and high school athletes, coaches and teams from all sports venues that have documented accomplishments. All-State, All-American, State Championships and MVPs. Record breakers and record holders that made their community proud during their amazing championship runs. The Hall of Fame was the idea of Don Wetzel, Sr. brought to life with the help of his son, Donnie Wetzel, Jr.
The 2020 Induction Ceremony set for April 16, 2020, at the UC Ballroom - University of Montana in Missoula, MT. Will be rescheduled. WIth the postponement of Kyi-Yo and the Montana Campus closures, we feel it is important to set a later date. Potentially in the Fall or December.
