    Native American Eclipse Celebration

    The Wind River Hotel & Casino on the Wind River Indian Reservation, just south of Riverton, will offer many activities for the eclipse. Including, a celebration during the eclipse that includes singers and dancers. Performers will shoot flaming arrows at the sun in hopes that it will re-emerge, which we're sure it will.
