A new push by U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., to
terminate a portion of the Wind River Reservation should appall and worry Native
American people everywhere, Northern Arapaho leaders said Tuesday.
Draft legislation by Enzi, and supported by Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., would eliminate
the reservation status of a significant portion of Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone
homeland in central Wyoming.
“It’s chilling to see this kind of attack on Indian Country in 2014,” said Northern Arapaho
Business Council Chairman Darrell O’Neal.
The bill is a response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to treat the
Wind River tribes as a state under the Clean Air Act. A detailed legal analysis in the EPA
decision concluded that the town of Riverton is part of the Wind River Reservation, a
position the tribes have always held.
