The Quiz: What tribe lived in the area that is now Wyoming when Europeans and their descendants arrived in the 1800s?
Bands of Eastern Shoshone lived and traveled through the area that is now Grand Teton National Park and had a close spiritual relationship with the Teton Range. In the 19th century, some mountain-dwelling Shoshone were known as ‘Sheepeaters’ or ‘Tukudeka,’ as bighorn sheep were a staple of their diet. Today, most of the Eastern Shoshone have settled in the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming.
The correct answer to this quiz is Shoshone.
