Let's Talk Wyoming - Embracing the Unexpected: Wyoming's Mellow Winter, Cowboys' Victory, and the Legacy of the Dullknife Fight

Let's Talk Wyoming

Jan 5 2024 • 26 mins

Let the mild winds of Wyoming whisk you away as we unravel the effects of a winter that refuses to bite, and the surprising consequences it's having on the natural world and our beloved pastimes. As your host, Mark Hamilton, I invite you to ponder with me why the birds are not heading south and what this means for the months ahead. Join us in the afterglow of the Wyoming Cowboys' exhilarating win, as we look forward to a reinvigorated football season, dreaming of gridiron glory with a fresh coaching crew set to revamp our offensive plays.

Step back in time with me to an era of conflict and courage as we recount the Dullknife Fight of 1876, a pivotal skirmish in the Indian Wars etched in the annals of Northern Cheyenne history. Hear the echoes of a village surprised under a freezing dawn by US troops, and feel the tension of a people torn between the old ways and new impositions. This is a tale of valor, tragedy, and the enduring spirit of the Cheyenne, woven into a narrative that honors their struggle and magnifies the voices from our past that still have much to teach us about resilience and the human condition.
