In this excerpt from What Was Ours, members of Wyoming’s Wind River Reservation’s Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes visit Chicago’s Field Museum to see firsthand some of the boxed-away artifacts long ago taken from their tribes. A lot of these objects were purchased for the museum by a curator, sold by Native Americans desperate for money.
