Come experience our Native American Gallery

At the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center, bronze sculptures are on display depicting the essence of the Old West. This cover artwork by Terry Murphy is titled "Spirit of the Hunter."

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of National Trails System, the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper partnered with the US Forest Service to promote the Nez Perce National Historic Trail. Designated by Congress (1986), the Nez Perce HNT encompasses 1,170 miles from the Wallow Valley in eastern Oregon to the plains in north-central Montana including a segment through Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

Sacagawea was a valued member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and assisted in the exploration of the land acquired by the Louisana Purchase. On May 14, 1805, Sacagawea is credited with saving the journals and records of Lewis and Clark during an incident where a boat had capsized. She is buried at Fort Washakie located in Wyoming. Image shown is a detail of a painting by Edgar Samuel Paxson.
