Native Americans share heritage, culture at Indian Village

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The Indian Village is a staple of CFD

The permanent village site was established in 1960, and ever since, visitors have watched and learned first hand about the many different tribes from Wyoming.

Mikala Sunrhodes comes with her family from the Wind River Reservation for a fun and busy ten days. "I perform three times a day and I also ride horse in the parade and in the rodeo," said Sunrhodes.

And while she performs, she's teaching people about her culture.
"I love sharing my heritage and my culture with the other people that visit," said Sunrhodes.

CFD Indian Committee member Jack Knudson said he appreciates all he's learned about Native Americans in his 23 years on the committee.
"They're just a great bunch of people and I can't say anything but good things about them."

Sunrhodes said she hopes people come away from their visit to the Indian Village with a little more understanding about her life. "How we do come from different walks of life and do live within two worlds," she said.
