Description

Recount a pivotal moment in the relationship between white settlers and Native Americans Saturday, September 8, during the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center’s Pioneer Trail Trek program, “Treaty of 1851.”

The trek’s first stop will be at Fort Laramie for a brief introduction and outline of the opening days of the treaty.

This trail trek will depart from the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center at 8:00 a.m. and should return in the late afternoon.
