Wyoming was home to more than a dozen Indian tribes when the first American traders entered the area. The region was acquired in portions by the United States: the east in the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the west in the Oregon Boundary Settlement in 1846, and the southwest with Mexican cession of the area in 1848. The Oregon Trail through the area increased population in the region. The state was formed from the Wyoming Territory, organized in 1868. It was the first state to give women the vote.
