Eastern Shoshone Indian Days Powwow

About the Wind River Reservation
The Eastern Shoshone Tribe, now living on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, has been living, some say, in the Wind River mountain range and its environs for some 12,000 years. Recently discovered ancient cliff dwellings, attributed to Eastern Shoshone builders, in the Wind River Mountains are evidence of just how long the Shoshone Tribe has dwelled and hunted in these lands. By the early 1800s, the Eastern Shoshone band ranged along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains from southwestern Wyoming to southwestern Montana. In the 1860s, the band camped for most of the year in the Wind River Valley, which the Shoshones call “Warm Valley”, moving to the Fort Bridger area in Wyoming for the summer months.

The Shonshone Tribal Cultural Center is located in the Historic Fort Washakie exhibits of tribal crafts, art, Shoshone leaders treaty documents, maps, agreements, and other historical artifacts.
