Indian Family Picnic

Back to Search Results

A family picnics at Bear Lake on the Wind River Indian Reservation, home to the Shoshone and Arapahoe tribes.  For famlilies of Wyoming's vast Wind River Reservation, natural gas means income, with 95 percent of revenues for the Shoshone and Arapahoe who live there coming from conventional gas drilling. BLM helps handle the new leases, but tribal elders may veto sites that hold sacred significance.
