The Illini Indians is a not-for-profit organization which promotes the sport of trapshooting and good fellowship among its members. It cooperates with the Illinois State Trapshooters Association and the Amateur Trapshooting Association to support these goals. The Illini Indians was formed in 1931.

The primary way in which the Illini Indians promotes trapshooting is by offering prizes to its members (which are typically in addition to prizes provided by the hosting club) at those shoots designated as “Indian Shoots”. Expanded Indian awards are presented at Indian “Zone Shoots,” the Indian Day at the Silver Dollar Shoot and at the shoot known as the “Pow Wow” that is typically held in the late fall. The Pow Wow is usually a two-day shoot which features a free dinner buffet for each Illini Indian member.

The ATA Shoot Scores are used to determine which ILLINI INDIAN members will receive awards for that ILLINI INDIAN Shoot. There is no additional shoot fees other than regular membership fees.
