History Happy Hour: How Cultural Institutions Can Support Native American Culture and People
July 2 @ 5:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
“Now is the time, we, the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce), share our own story, with cultural integrity at the forefront… Historically and from this day forward people will be reminded that we have and always (will) be known for our vast connection to the land in which we originated from. Guiding and sharing our wisdom is in our DNA.” – Stacia Morfin, Owner and Operator, Nez Perce Tourism, LLC
This special Virtual First Thursday and History Happy Hour Zoom event on July 2nd features Stacia Morfin and Janet Gallimore (Executive Director, Idaho State Historical Society) as they discuss how cultural institutions have a role in supporting the traditions and stories of Native American tribes, such as the Nez Perce. Moderator Alison Espindola (Event & Rental Coordinator, Idaho State Museum) will discuss with the two panelists what it takes to be a “cultural storyteller.” In addition to hearing the panelists perspectives you can participate in the conversation through the audience Q&A before the event by emailing [email protected] or during the event in the chat bar.
Visit our friends at Payette Brewing beforehand to take home one of their tasty beers like Urban Surfer, Sofa King Sunny, or Embers. Then hurry home to make sure not to miss History Happy Hour with the Idaho State Museum!
