One of the most famous of all Eastern Shoshone headmen and leaders.  Known for his prowess as both warrior and statesperson, Washakie played a prominent role in the territorial and statehood development of Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming.  He hunted and trapped with famous mountain man Jim Bridger, sat in treaty councils and negotiations with Mormon elder Brigham Young, and secured the Wind River Reservation as the homeland of the Eastern Shoshones.
