The Chief Washakie Foundation is a non-profit
organization that supports educational programs and research,
the creation of class room materials, and scholarship opportunities
for Native American youth and educators with significant ties
to Wyoming’s Wind River Indian Reservation.
The Foundation’s web site consists of primary resource
materials, on-line exhibits, and a searchable database of historical
photographs and oral histories pertaining to the history and cultural
traditions of the Shoshone and Arapaho of Central Wyoming.
Particular emphasis is also given to the Mountain Shoshone,
or Sheep Eater Indians, and other Mountain - as opposed to Plains
Indians - of the Greater Yellowstone Region.
All materials can be easily downloaded, at no charge, for use
in the classroom.
