Northern Cheyenne Elder Stories
These are Cheyenne friends that Father Emmett has known, including Cheyenne elders for whom the Heritage Living Center was built. The Cheyenne elders couldn’t wait to move in! Before construction began in August 2000, a group of elders gathered around the building model display, vying for rooms with the best view of the Tongue River Valley. Excitement grew when they toured the building and saw the apartments, dining room, library, chapel, activity rooms and the beautiful views of their homeland.
