Montana’s Native People: Perspectives on the Clovis Child Webinar Series Part 7
Yellowstone Gateway Museum invites tribal college and high school students and educators to join us Fall and Winter 2020 for a FREE eight-session live career webinar series. The webinars explore the work of anthropologists, archaeologists, geneticists and other professionals who have gained an understanding of the Anzick Site in Park County, Montana.
Duane Reid, tribal historic preservation officer
Duane Reid wrote a Capstone paper for his undergraduate BA degree at Salish-Kootenai College that compared and contrasted the Anzick Site remains and the Kennewick Man remains. Reid believes that DNA analysis is crucial for identifying and repatriating culturally unidentifiable Native American remains. He feels strongly that more Native American students should consider studying anthropology and will speak about his studies and career as Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Little Shell Tribe.
Duane Reid is an enrolled member of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana and serves as their Tribal Historic Preservation Officer. He has an undergraduate degree in Tribal Historic Preservation from Salish Kootenai College, located on the Flathead Indian Reservation, as well as an MA graduate degree in Anthropology from the University of Montana.
