Riverton is 'Indian Country'

Jul 28, 2014 - Steve Willow, Lander


I am an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe. I would like to let all you non-native people know that you can write letters and cry around about the EPA issue that's backed by the DOE and DOI, but I just want to say that Riverton is on and in the Wind River Indian Reservation.

Therefore, it's "Indian Country." Passed over 1905-2005.
