Scene from authentic Native American dances at the Indian Village on the rodeo grounds of the Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration in the Wyoming
capital city. The Western celebration that is viewed by an estimated 200,000 onlookers, including throngs of tourists, each year in a city of 62,000 people (as of 2015) includes one of the West's most celebrated rodeos, American Indian pageantry, free pancake breakfasts, several Old West-themed parades, and other events. Cheyenne Frontier Days have been a mountain-states tradition since 1897. Photo by Carol Highsmith.
