Lee Spoonhunter and Brian Bagley sign the historic agreement.

 

Longmont made history in September when it inked the first-ever sister city union with a sovereign nation. Longmont sits squarely on land once occupied by the Northern Arapaho Tribe, which now calls the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming home. The planning stretched on for three years and finally culminated in a festive event that marked the historic signing by Lee Spoonhunter, Northern Arapaho Business Council
co-chairman, and Longmont’s then-mayor Brian Bagley.
