Nez Perce artists Kellen Trenal and Phil Cash Cash, writer Beth Piatote, and other Nez Perce writers and speakers will be here to read and reflect on their own work as it relates to maps, words, and images of the current exhibit:, “Nez Perce Treaties and Reservations, 1855-Present.”
Kellen is a multi-talented performance and visual artist, a master beadworker and podcaster; Phil, who co-authored a book of area place-names, is Cayuse-Nez Perce and enrolled on the Umatilla Reservation. Beth Piatote has written poems, plays, and academic texts about the Indian experience. Along with other Nez Perce speakers, they are spending a week in their own “language camp” in the land of their grandparents.
There is no charge for this event. although donations are appreciated, and there will be books and art work for sale.
