Pilámaya – thank you for sharing your visit. All the artists, musicians and poets of the Articles of a Treaty Exhibit did a wonderful job of bringing each of the articles of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty to life in a simple, easy to follow manner.

Great exhibits here and all for a donation rather than an official entry charge. Many wonderful exhibits as well as a number of videos explaining the history of the church and its involvement in educating the children.The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable too.
