James Trosper

In Native Spirit and The Sun Dance Way, James Trosper describes the relentless attacks Indian people suffered upon their physical, cultural and spiritual way of life with the coming of the white man. He offers thoughtful reflections upon the role that adherence to the ways of their Grandfathers played in helping his people maintain their identity into the 21st Century.

James Trosper is Sun Dance Chief of the Shoshone Tribe in Fort Washakie, Wyoming and is a direct descendant of the great Chief Washakie. Trosper is deeply involved in developing programs to preserve the Shoshone language and cultural heritage.

He is also a Trustee of the University of Wyoming and a director of the Grand Teton National Park foundation.
