The cemetery mapping project began along 17 mile road on the Wind River Reservation in the summer of 2019. The Historic Preservation Office plans to map every cemetery and identify every grave on Wind River to help families identify relatives whom they previously had trouble locating.
Often overlooked by historians as well as the general public; artifacts carried by the mails may shed an interesting light on the ways and manners of a given time. “Postal history” is the study of where and how the everyday mail has been addressed, conveyed, and delivered. Even when the letters are no longer extant to provide a direct glimpse of earlier times, envelopes alone, with all their markings, can evoke a story of exploration and settlement, hard times and not so hard, urbane civilization and rugged frontier conditions.
Harry Harpoon, a local singer-songwriter, harmonica player, slide guitarist, and historian will perform an original show at 6pm in the yard at the Riverton Museum.
