It’s Not All About Cowboys at Cheyenne Frontier Days: Visit the Indian Village
Have you ever visited the Indian Village at Frontier Park during Cheyenne Frontier Days?
Everything is not just about the cowboys at CFD, since the second “Daddy of ’em All” in 1898, Native Americans have been given space at the western celebration.
In the 1960’s, a permanent campground was created at the southeast corner of Frontier Park.
Visitors get an instant lesson in Native American history; see their teepees, watch their dances in colorful costumes, hear their music and taste the Indian Fry Bread. Several booths and exhibits offer crafts and hand-made jewelry.
