Idaho Cultural Symbols

Idaho’s trio of cultural symbols can be summed up with one word—boring.

Cultural Symbols  
Writer-in-Residence (various) 1923
American Folk Dance of Idaho square dance Redundant Symbol 1989
Language English Redundant Symbol 2007

The square dance and English are two of the most redundant state symbols. An official writer-in-residence is more respectable, though it still doesn’t say much about Idaho. Perhaps some ambitious citizen will write a clever poem about potatoes some day.
