(Riverton) – It was a busy day for area banks and businesses as members of the Northern Arapaho Tribe began receiving settlement checks yesterday.

There was a visible increase in law enforcement as local police provided security for the delivery of cash to local banks.

The Wind River Indian Reservation’s settlement total from mineral royalties is approximately 157 million dollars.

The delivery of settlement checks to Eastern Shoshone Tribal members has been delayed because of vacancies on the tribal council, which currently doesn’t have enough members to meet quorum.
