A second statue of Eastern Shoshone Chief Washakie was uneviled on the Wind River Reservation yesterday, following one which will be representing the state of Wyoming in the National Statuary Hall in Washington, DC.

The 7-foot bronze statue was accompanied by a powwow dedicated to Chief Washakie on Sunday. Washakie signed the Treaty of Fort Bridger in 1868, securing for the tribe their reservation.

A third statue of Washakie will be placed in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
