Wind River Indian Reservation
The Wind River Indian Reservation is a place in Wyoming in the United States where Native Americans live. Eastern Shoshone and the Northern Arapaho live there. It is the seventh largest reservation in the United States. Wind River is 2.2 million acres in size.
Wind River Reservation was started in 1868 for the Eastern Shoshone. The Arapaho came later. The Arapaho tried to get along with whites and help the government, so sometimes the government gave them more land or help, even though that was not always legal.
