HISTORY: The least-populated state in America, Wyoming was populated by Santee and Dakota Indians, among others, before white settlers arrived. Frenchmen were the first to come in 1743, and American John Colter explored Yellowstone Park in 1807. Wyoming became part of America in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. Forts Laramie and Bridger in Wyoming were main stops on pioneer trails heading West. Indian wars grew as settlers and railroads crept onto Indian lands. In 1869, Wyoming became the first state to give women the right to vote. With Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and miles of uninhabited land, Wyoming is a favorite destination of sportsmen and tourists seeking some "Western flavor" on a dude ranch or by a quiet mountain stream.
