Northern Arapaho Tribe hosts symposium on boundary dispute

The Northern Arapaho Tribe of Wyoming is hosting a symposium tomorrow to discuss a reservation boundary dispute.

“Mending Fences: How One Michigan town settled its reservation boundary issue out of the courts" focuses on how the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe resolved a boundary dispute. The symposium takes place from 9am to 1pm at Central Wyoming College.

The tribe shares the Wind River Reservation with the Eastern Shoshone Tribe. State officials and politicians claim the reservation was diminished by act of Congress in 1905.

The Northern Arapaho Tribe is fighting a Congressional bill that would resolve the dispute in favor of the state.
