Arapaho Journeys

Photographs and Stories from the Wind River Reservation

Arapaho Journeys is currently available only through the gift shops of the Wind River Casino and Hotel, Riverton, Wyoming

A family album of the Northern Arapaho tribe—a gift to the people who have befriended Sara Wiles and incorporated her into their lives. Richly contextualized, this book offers an intimate portrayal of life in an American Indian community.

—Raymond J. DeMallie, Chancellor’s Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University, and Co-director, American Indian Studies Research Institute

Presented without common stereotypes about Native Americans, these photographs and stories honor the Northern Arapaho people, their cultural heritage, and their perseverance in preserving traditions.

—Emma I. Hansen, Senior Curator of the Plains Indian Museum at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center

Arapaho Journeys book and exhibit were sponsored by the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources; the Northern Arapaho Tribe and the Wind River Casino; the Buffalo Bill Historical Center; and the Wyoming Humanities Council.
