Arapaho Language Project

Windriver Arapaho Preserving a Dying Language

This is very exciting to me as an anthropologist and as a Windriver Reservation descendant. My dad wasn't Arapaho, he was Eastern Shoshone. We don't eat dinner with Arapaho, as they are hereditary enemies. It seemed to be some kind of practical joke of Uncle Sam to put hereditary enemies on the same rez.

I'm thrilled for them and wish them well in their language and cultural endeavor.
