Wyoming Native American Tribes
Transcript of Wyoming Native American Tribes
The name "Wyoming" comes from the Eastern Algonquian Indian word Chwewamink, which means "by the big river flat."
The Lenape never lived in the area that is now Wyoming, however... the state's name was borrowed from a place name in Pennsylvania.
The date of Wyoming's statehood was July 10th, 1890.
Southcentral Montana, on the western border of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation is where the Crow Trible is mainly located.
The Crow call themselves Apsaalooke (ep-sah-lo-kay), which means "Children of the Large-Beaked Bird."

Outline of Wyoming with the Native American Tribes
The Southern Arapaho tribe were deported by the US government to Oklahoma, where they joined together with the Cheyenne. The Northern Arapaho tribe remains in Wyoming today.
The Cheyenne tribe were forced by the US government to move to Oklahoma during the 1800's, but some escaped and fled north into Montana. Today there are two Cheyenne tribes, one in Oklahoma and the other in Montana.
The Crow tribe were living on the Great Plains in what is now Montana and Wyoming. Most Crow people still live in Montana today.
The Shoshone tribe lived in what is now Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and even parts of California.
The Ute tribe were never forced out of Wyoming and lived in what is now Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Nevada.
The Status of the Wyoming Indian Tribes
Old-Man-Coyote: Coyote played the role of both Creator and trickster in Crow mythology. In some versions of the Crow creation myth there were actually two Coyotes, the Old Man Coyote who created people, animals, and the earth, and a regular Coyote who had adventures and got into trouble. In other versions, they were one and the same.
Thrown-Behind-Curtain and Thrown-In-Spring (or Lodge-Boy and Thrown-Away.) These mythical twins whose mother was killed by a monster are common to the folklore of many Midwestern and Plains tribes. They are generally portrayed as heroic monster-slayers in Crow stories.
Nirumbee: Goblin-like little people of Crow folklore.
Greasy Breast: Dwarven hero of Crow folklore.
Lodge-Boy and Thrown-Away
Some Apsaalooke people practice their traditional religion, others practice Christianity, or the peyote religion of the Native American Church
Men and women honor their clan aunts and uncles by showing them respect and deference, showering them with gifts on special occasions, and feasting them. In turn, the aunts and uncles praise their clan children's good deeds publicly and offer their prayers, protection, and guidance.
In the beginning, the Earth only had water and was inhabited by Old Man Coyote and ducks. Old Man Coyote had ducks swim down to the bottom of the Earth and fetch soil and roots. Old Man Coyote created land mass using the dirt and planted the soil making trees, grass, and other plants. Old Man Coyote and the ducks worked together to create mountains, hills, rivers, ponds, and springs. Soon after, Old Man Coyote used the mud to create people, male and female. Another Coyote, named Cirape, gave Old Man Coyote the idea of creating different species of animals. To keep his creations happy, Old Man Coyote created music, dancing, and drums. Cirape also gave Old Man Coyote the ideas of creating tools and weapons for the people. And Cirape suggested that people should have war. Thus Old Man Coyote created tribes.
Then Old Man coyote and Cirape discussed
the the feelings when marrying a woman.
So because of Old Man Coyote's story about
the feelings, is why Corw men ever since have
taken back wives they had already divorced.
The Crow Tribe believed that when a women is stolen by other men several times; if they take them back the women will be better in every aspect of their lifestyle and be more obedient to their significant other
They also believed that humans were given weapons, such as bow 'n arrows and spears, because all animals were already equipped with weapons and special attributes of their own that make them better than the humans
All the evils that the two boys killed are all the evils that the Crow Tribe believed in.
The Thunder-Bird would be the major important symbol to the Crow Tribe. The Thunder-Bird means glory and power.
