This Obscure Little Wyoming Cemetery Is The Sacred Resting Place Of One Of History’s Most Famous Native Americans

Wyoming is a place to find countless pieces of history, though some are hidden away in unassuming spots here and there.

One such place is a modest little country cemetery on the Wind River Reservation. No road signs mark the way, and the area is noticeably absent of typical tourist trappings such as visitors centers and gift shops. Yet, the burial ground is the sacred resting place of one of the most famous Native American women in history. It’s remote and quite ordinary, but so worth the trip.
