Brian Boner wanted to deal with the issue of federal rules on private land, but a bill he’ll propose in the upcoming legislative session deals with an older problem: what to do with Native American remains found in Wyoming. As drilling interest has risen in the Powder River Basin with the price of crude, conflict has sparked regarding how the Bureau of Land Management carried out its environmental and cultural rules. The basin is a confluence of Native American history, with more than a dozen tribes’ footprints left behind in graves and rock formations on the landscape — a largely privately-owned landscape.
