A Diamond in the Rough: The Wind River Reservation
Riverton is in Fremont County, Wyoming. It’s at the southern edge of the Wind River Indian Reservation, and is home to vibrant Native American culture that dates back hundreds of years. Names like Chief Washakie, Jim Bridger, and Sacajawea, are just a few notable figures who have made Riverton the place it is today. The city’s surroundings are stunning, and you can see why the Arapahoe and Shoshone tribes have a strong connection to it. Rolling plains coupled with sudden, protruding mountain ranges constitute the lands they call home.

My father’s native family are from Riverton and I am looking for leads to see his home. He spoke of the reservation and the beautiful countryside. He and his family left to move to Michigan and Ohio where they worked for Ford Motor Co after serving in the US Air Force. Any information I can get to help me plan my trip will help. Thank you.
