Other tribes, including the Kiowa, Cheyenne, Arapaho and Sioux, are also thought to have roamed the area. The arrival of the Union Pacific construction crews in the 1860s caused Native Americans to be pressured onto the ever-shrinking hunting lands and their presence steadily diminished on the lands now known as Curt Gowdy State Park.
