University of Wyoming senior Ashlee Enos is in a crowded campus ballroom, watching a hip-hop artist from the Crow Nation who goes by the name ‘Supaman’ do his thing.
“I think it’s awesome that we have someone who’s so into the culture, and wants to give cultural awareness to the public,” Enos says.
Enos is a member of the Eastern Shoshone tribe. She says there aren’t many others at UW.
“It’s a very small number,” she says. “Maybe less than five.”
Less than one percent of total students here identify solely as American Indian—just 91 of more than 13,000.
