The Arapaho-speaking people are said to have originated as a formal tribe roughly 3,000 years ago in the Canadian province of Manitoba and the US state of Minnesota along the Red River Valley. Eventually, these people began to move southward into the Great Plains before the 18th century. The Arapaho moved both south and west, eventually splitting into two allied tribes that established a cultural footprint that stretched from Montana and Wyoming in the northwest and Nebraska, Colorado, and Oklahoma in the south.

On the obverse side of the 2020 Proof Silver Nebraska Arapaho Catfish Coin is an image of a figure from the Arapaho tribe. This figure is shown wearing ceremonial dress central to the Arapaho culture. As the Arapaho moved south from their native homelands in the Upper Great Lakes and Midwest, the Arapaho people split into two tribes known as the Northern Arapaho and Southern Arapaho.
The reverse face of 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Nebraska Arapaho Catfish Coins includes an image of the channel catfish. Catfish is a term that applies to a diverse group of fish known as ray-finned fish. The catfish is so-named because of its prominent barbels, or whiskers, on its face.
