Last Sunday Presentation: Ancient Artifacts Tell the Stories of the People
June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
If ever there was a story worth listening to it is the one of the first peoples of this valley! Imagine living here at a time when the glaciers had only recently receded. Imagine following the traditional food sources, the animals and the plants throughout the seasons using the wisdom of selective harvesting to protect future sources of nutrition and medicine. What tools would have been used 8,000 years ago and how do we believe those tools of everyday life were made? The community has been incredibly generous in sharing information and donating found artifacts and these objects reveal a compelling story that gives context to our modern experience in this valley.
The Methow Valley Interpretive Center presents “Ancient Artifacts Tell the Story of the People” A Last Sunday Presentation on Sunday, 6/24. Rich Davis will present findings from the the Methow Artifact Research Project, a collaborative effort with Aaron Naumann, Senior Archaeoogist at Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
This presentation is free and open to the public but donations are gratefully accepted.
