ARAPAHOE, WYOMING — It is estimated that up to 200 Northern Arapaho students from the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming died while attending the Carlisle Boarding School in Pennsylvania. They were never returned home for a proper burial.

They died from sheer depression and some from other diseases.

The Northern Arapaho Tribal Historic Preservation Office is attempting to have the remains of 41 returned to the Wind River Indian Reservation for a traditional Arapaho burial.
