In June of 1979, representatives from 14 Native American tribes gathered with other dignitaries and a sea of onlookers to dedicate the Plains Indian Museum in Cody, Wyo.

The museum was the latest addition to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, which is now called the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. 

Watch the video above to hear the sights and sounds from the day of excitement in this week’s Q2 Rewind. You’ll also hear reflections from Wyoming’s longtime Sen. Al Simpson, who was on the board of the Historical Center at the time and later became its chairman.
