"Washakie: Through the Lens of Time"

On loan from the American Heritage Center in Laramie, this exhibit examines different images and impressions of Chief Washakie throughout history and today.  He was a leader of the Eastern Shoshones from the 1840s until his death in 1900, and today he is seen by many as someone who embodied all the traits of great leadership.
