About This Tour

Welcome to the Wind River Indian Reservation. This is Indian Country. That's what Native Americans call the last areas controlled by Indian nations who once ranged far and wide across America.

The Wind River Reservation is the seventh largest reservation in the U.S. It is home to four thousand Eastern Shoshone and nine thousand Northern Arapahos. Both groups are reviving languages and cultural and spiritual practices that used to be repressed or even outlawed by the U.S. government. The reservation is home to two very famous historical Shoshone figures – Sacajawea and Chief Washakie -- as well as rich history and culture. As you drive through these lands, enjoy the many sights and sounds of the wonderful and amazing warm valley.

This tour is presented by the students at Fort Washakie High School with the support of the Fremont County School District #21 Board of Education. To learn more about this school visit www.fortwashakieschool.com
