Known for his bravery, Chief Washakie is perhaps the most famous of all Eastern Shoshone leaders, according to the Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum. Along with several other prominent roles in forming statehoods, Washakie is credited with “securing the Wind River Reservation as the homeland of the Eastern Shoshones.”
Oil City News in Casper shared, “Washakie: Through the Lens of Time” is on loan from the American Heritage Center in Laramie and will be on view at the Fort Caspar Museum in Casper until February 1st, 2020.
The exhibit includes 16 photographs, illustrations, and information panels that examine Chief Washakie throughout history and today, according to a Ft. Caspar statement.
