Tribes Fundraising To Send Wyo. Group To Inaugural
RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — The Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes are raising money to try to send a group to Washington, D.C. to represent Wyoming in next week’s inaugural parade.
Northern Arapaho tribal liaison Gary Collins says the Presidential Inaugural Committee recently contacted him about getting a Wyoming delegation to participate in the Jan. 21 parade. He said he contacted the tribes to put together the Wind River Dancers.
Collins told The Associated Press that they need to raise $35,000 to send between 10 and 15 people to Washington. An account has been set up at Atlantic City Federal Credit Union.
