Reservation Boundary Symposium
(Riverton) – Northern Arapaho leaders have invited Governor Matt Mead, the state’s congressional delegation and others to a symposium tomorrow in Riverton to learn how a Michigan community came together and settled a reservation boundary dispute like the one here in Wyoming.
Tomorrow’s symposium at Central Wyoming College will feature officials from Michigan and the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe who will explain how the tribal and non-Indian communities overcame decades of tension and conflict to settle their reservation boundary dispute.
Northern Arapaho Business Council member Al Addison says the tribe hopes the symposium will provide a safe place to sit down and learn from the Michigan experience.
The theme for the one-day symposium is “Mending Fences: How One Michigan town settled its reservation boundary issue out of the courts.”
