Reserved Inequality: A Study of Inequality on the Wind River Reservation
thesisposted on 01.05.2019, 00:00 by MacKenzie Sewell
This project is an historical analysis of inequality of the Native Americans in Wyoming. Specifically, it examines the historical roots and implications of various facets of inequality among the Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes on the Wind River Reservation near Riverton, WY. From the establishment of this reservation through approximately 2010, this project looks at educational disparities, housing, as well as economic inequalities surrounding employment, income and wages, and poverty. As this project clarifies, all of these fields present significant inequalities for the members of these tribes, and each has historical roots that persist to today.
