Montana Indian Athletic Hall of Fame
Keeping stories alive. Our Tribal Athletes and the histories behind their accomplishments are the modern-day lore of tribal deeds, of warrior legends! The information we are gathering within the MIAHOF will 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 and find the direction to make their own mark through dedication, honor and IDENTITY.
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 high school, college and pro athletes, coaches and teams from all athletic 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 is being rescheduled to the Fall or Winter and we will provide updates as they happen. It will still be held at the UC Ballroom - University of Montana in Missoula, MT. Check our FACEBOOK page for Inductee write ups happening every week!
