The Wind River Virtual Museum aims to provide members of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes of the Wind River Reservation in Central Wyoming a vehicle to retain their cultural heritage, as the numbers of tribal elders are diminishing. The virtual museum also attempts to give next generation of tribal members and the general public a way to learn about the heritage of these two tribes.
