BBC News Growing up Indian not Native American in Wyoming

Wyoming, a state in the western United States that straddles the intersection of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains, had been a part of the traditional geographic expanse of various Native American tribes: the Shoshone, the Arapaho, the Cheyenne, and the Crow. During the era of Westward Expansion in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Crow were pushed north to Montana, where there was already a significant population of their tribe, and the Cheyenne were split between Montana and Oklahoma. Only the Shoshone and Arapaho remained in Wyoming, with some of both sent to the Wind River Indian Reservation, and others of both pushed to other western states and Oklahoma, respectively. As such, in total, there are two Native American languages currently spoken in Wyoming: Shoshone and Arapaho.
