Before the History of the Indian tribes, archeology has shown a culture of people originating from central europe with features and bone structure. There are a lot of findings in the area.

Present-day Wyoming was populated by a number of Plains Indian tribes, including the Crow, Eastern Shoshone, Cheyenne, Northern Arapaho, and Sioux. Francs Francois and Louis La Verendrye were the first Europeans to explore the region in 1743, but the State's remoteness discouraged settlement.

Settlement was facilitated by the 1868 construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. Activities of cattle rustlers and vigilante groups reached a climax in the 1892 cattle war of Johnson County.
