Archaeology in the Intermountain West with a Presentation by Larry Cesspooch
Saturday August 18, 2012, the Museum of Anthropology invites you to explore the archaeology of the Intermountain West. Join us at 1 p.m. for a special presentation, “Utah History Through Native Eyes: Learning About the Noochew (Ute People)” by Ute spiritual leader and storyteller Larry Cesspooch. The presentation will be about key periods that greatly affected the Noochew, including life before non-Indian contact, Spanish control, and the arrival of the Latter-Day Saints. At 12 p.m., Utah State University graduate students will present their summer research. The topics will range from information on an excavation in Wyoming and Idaho to how to get involved in archaeology. Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to make their own Fremont figurines.
