Over the years, pipes, cradle boards, parfleches, and other ancestral artifacts from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming have accumulated in museums, far from their place of origin. Lived History documents the creation of a high definition video 'virtual museum' of ancestral artifacts, currently stored in museum collections, for the
Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes.
The Wind River Virtual Museum is an attempt to preserve the observations of elders, whose numbers are diminishing rapidly on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
