Kaylei Weed, her sons Earl Lebeau (left) and Baptiste Lebeau, and her mother, Elaine Ethel Weed, are members of the Eastern Shoshone tribe at the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming's Wind River Basin. The reservation was established for the Eastern Shoshone in 1863 following a unique treaty with Shoshone Chief Washakie, admired by Indians and whites alike, on 45 million acres in the land that their ancestors had occupied on a seasonal basis for thousands of years. The reservation is unique: It is also home to a second, unrelated tribe: the Northern Arapahoe, who were placed on the reservation in 1878 with a promise, never fulfilled, of their own reservation in the future.
