SEPTEMBER 8, 2000 A likeness of Eastern Shoshone Chief Washakie represents the state of Wyoming in the National Statuary Hall in Washington, DC. Each state can have two statues. Along with women's rights leader Esther Hobart Morris, Washakie, who initiated the Fort Bridger Treaty of 1868, will appear in the hall. New Mexico will soon have an Indian representing the state as well. Pope, the San Juan Pueblo man who led the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, will take his place in the nation's capitol as soon his statue is commissioned. Get the Story:
