PROGRAM FOR MAY 9 COWGIRLS LUNCHEON:
MIKE KASSEL, GUEST SPEAKER

During Cheyenne Frontier Days™, one of the most popular attractions is the Indian Village. Tens of thousands of people are drawn to the mystery of the wooden stockade and what lays within. Amidst the hustle, bustle and thrills of CFD™, the Indian Village offers a welcome respite, and so much more. Once past the walls of the compound, guests enter a world of ancient traditions, dazzling color and deep history. The Indians who come to CFD™ are eager to share their heritage with the throngs of curious onlookers. It is an atmosphere of mutual respect and a deep appreciation of the legacy of America’s first peoples. It was not always so.

At its very inception, Cheyenne’s relationship with its Indian neighbors was far different. When Cheyenne was established in 1867, the Great Plains was the scene of bloody conflict as local tribes fought bitterly against the incessant encroachment of white civilization.
It was a time of mutual hostility, resentment and suspicion. How did the relationship go from being so bad, to the wonderful relationship it is today?
Join Mike Kassel as he explores how Cheyenne and its Indian neighbors moved from perpetual conflict to mutual benefit.
