Utah History Through Native Eyes at the USU Museum of Anthropology
LOGAN — Saturday May 29, 2010 the Museum of Anthropology will be hosting Utah Humanities Council “Public Square” speaker, Larry Cesspooch. The presentation will be about key time periods which greatly affected the Noochew (Ute People), including life before Non-Indian contact, the influence of Spanish explorers, and settlement of the Latter-day Saints. The presentation will begin at 1 p.m. in the Museum.
“It is always important to broaden your perspective and see the impact of events through another’s eyes,” says Ashley Smith, program coordinator. “Mr. Cesspooch will give us his perspective and allow us to see our shared history through him.”
At the beginning of its summer program the museum would like to announce its new summer booklist. Every Saturday event has a booklist, for adults and children; dedicated to the specific topic. For the booklist and more information on the museum’s events go to anthromuseum.usu.edu. The USU Museum of Anthropology is on the USU campus in the south turret of the historic Old Main building, Room 252. Free parking is available in the adjacent lot, south of the building.
USU students and members of the public are always invited to the museum any time during open hours: M-F 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Funding for Saturday events is provided by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. More information about the IMLS is available online (www.imls.gov).
