Wind River Stories: Gallery Show & Tribal Waters Film
Join the Greater Yellowstone Coalition as we dive into impactful stories showcasing the social, economic, and cultural injustices against Indigenous People, including the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho of the nearby Wind River Indian Reservation, a key landscape within Greater Yellowstone.
As the event opens, you’ll enjoy food and drink while mingling among breathtaking fine arts portraits and accompanying stories created by artists Carlos Alejandro and Hannah Habermann during the recent Inter-Tribal Gathering on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Later, you’ll watch the powerful 50-minute film, Tribal Waters, created by Teton Gravity Research, and described and funded by Patagonia: The Shoshone people have lived on the eastern slope of Wyoming’s Wind River Range for more than 10,000 years. The Wind River, which flows through their homeland, has deep meaning for them and the Northern Arapaho, the tribe they now share this land with. The water is crucial to their way of life, history, and customs. After hundreds of years of witnessing their waters, lands, and culture come under constant attack, there is hope that an outdoor-based, sustainable recreational economy could flourish here.
After the film, you’ll hear from key staff and stakeholders about GYC’s work to protect the lands, waters, and wildlife on the Wind River Indian Reservation and help elevate Native voices into the Western conservation movement.
