The history of the Arapaho people dates back to roughly 3,000 years ago when Arapaho-speaking people settled along the Red River Valley in what is now Manitoba, Canada, and the US state of Minnesota. Through warfare, trade, and alliances, the Arapaho would later expand into the Great Plains and spread a cultural footprint that extended from its original homelands to Colorado, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Wyoming.
The obverse face of the 2020 1 oz Proof Nebraska Arapaho Catfish Silver Coins includes a depiction of a member of the Arapaho tribe in ceremonial dress. In the 1850s, the Arapaho split into two organized tribes of Northern Arapaho and Southern Arapaho. The total population of Arapaho people today stands at roughly 10,800.
On the reverse side of 2020 Proof Nebraska Arapaho Catfish Silver coins is a depiction of the most common and numerous species of catfish in North America. The channel catfish is represented here and is the official fish of the US states of Kansa, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Tennessee.
