Montana’s Native People: Perspectives on the Clovis Child Webinar Series Part 1
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.
In the first webinar, Dr. Shane Doyle describes his experience while working as a liaison between the Center for Geogenetics and the Tribal Nations of Montana. Doyle, a member of the Apsáalooke (Crow) Nation, helped to organize the multi-tribal ceremonial reburial of the ancient remains that were discovered at the site in 1968. Dr. Doyle will also comment on his continued his collaborative work with the University of Copenhagen.
This project is funded by a grant from Humanities Montana with the support of Montana Office of Public Instruction.
