Wyoming has a rich Native American history with the Crow, Lakota, Arapaho, and Shoshone tribes, history that can still be scene in a variety of historical sites throughout the region. Starting in 1848, the land became owned by the United States, but it did not become a state until 1865. The land was used as a military installation, but the population began to grow once the Union Pacific Railroad passed through. Several years later, Yellowstone National Park became the first national park in the world. Since then, Wyoming has continued to make history, electing the first female as governor and making strides during the civil rights movement. The state became known as "The Equality State," which eventually turned into its official state motto of "Equal Rights." Wyoming is overall a peaceful place to live for those who call it home.
