LOGAN — Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology invites visitors to look at Utah’s history from an American Indian perspective.
Larry Cesspooch, a storyteller and spiritual leader from the Ute tribe, will be at USU’s Museum of Anthropology for the next “Saturdays at the Museum” event. At 1 p.m. on Aug. 18, he’ll present “Utah History Through Native Eyes: Learning About the Noochew (Ute People).” Key topics of the speech will include Noochew life before non-Indian contact, the impact of the Spanish, and the arrival of pioneers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The museum is also hosting USU graduate students, who will present their research. The student presentations begin at noon, and include information on excavations in Wyoming and Idaho, and how to become involved in archaeology.
Hands-on experiences will allow museum visitors to make Fremont figurines.
The USU Museum of Anthropology is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, in Room 252 of the Old Main building, on campus at 500 N. 700 East. Admission is free.
