More than twelve thousand American Indians served in the U.S. Armed Forces in the Great War. Interestingly, at the beginning of the war, many of these Indians were not U.S. citizens and did not enjoy the benefits of American citizenship. Douglas Cubbison, Curator of the Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum, will discuss the participation of American Indians in the American Expeditionary Force and U.S. Navy. Cubbison is the Curator of the Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum in Casper, Wyoing and President of the Wyoming State Historical Society.
The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Sheridan County Museum. There will be light refreshments following the program. Our Evening Program Series events are open to the public at no cost, everyone is welcome to come and participate. This program is made possible by the Homer A. and Mildred S. Scott Foundation.
