A peaceful vigil was held in Riverton’s City Park last night, June 1st, for 46-year-old George Floyd who was killed by Minneapolis Police Officers.

The vigil began at 7:00 pm led by Northern Arapaho Tribal member Micah “Big Wind” Carpenter-Lott. Micah started off with an Arapaho prayer followed by a moment of silence. The evening continued with speakers addressing the growing crowd about racism, and urging the community to stand together against racial injustice.
