Description

The presentation “Chief Washakie: Visionary Chief of the Shoshones” will feature NHTIC interpreter Shawn Wade at 1 p.m., Saturday, August 4. Washakie was able to foresee that the lifeways of the Shoshones were changing. As the tribe faced adaptation or extinction, he worked closely with white settlers, while advocating for and protecting the interests of his people. Statesman, diplomat, and warrior, Washakie is regarded as one of the greatest leaders in Native American history.

The NHTIC proudly presents a summer of afternoon programs on pioneer and Wyoming history. These short interpretive programs, ranging from 20 to 45 minutes, are free and open to the public.
