During the month of June we will have complimentary programs to the exhibit. First, Brown Bag Lunches will be held on three Tuesdays. First, June 7 we will be welcoming Nez Perce Fisheries; on June 14, Wil Phinney, editor of the Confederated Umatilla Journal. Finally, on June 21, at noon, we will show two 20-minute Nez Perce films “Of One Heart” and “Nez Perce: Portrait of a People.”
This year we welcome two Native artists in residence: Celeste Whitewolf and Allen Pinkham, Jr. Celeste will teach a basketry workshop from June 21-June 24, and Allen will be here at different times during the summer and fall to work on a traditional dug-out canoe. More news on this as the project grows.
