A Shoshone Perspective with Darren Parry

Oct 16, 2023, 6:00 pm

Join us for an evening with Darren Parry, author and former Chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, to explore Indigenous views of our relationship with and responsibility to the land. Learn about the Shoshone influence on our current cultural identity and how – and why – it is important to preserve respectful traditions that honor our Native American past. Tickets to optional food experience at 6pm can be purchased at www.northsummitunite.org, while 7pm lecture is free..

This event is part of Crossroads: Change in Rural America, a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution's Museum on Main Street program that provokes fresh thinking and sparks conversations about the future and sustainability of rural communities. Crossroads offers small towns a chance to look at their own paths over the past century – to highlight changes that affected their fortunes, explore how they have adapted, and think about what's next.

Crossroads: Change in Rural America, is a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Utah Humanities, touring in partnership with North Summit Unite and Summit County History Department. For more information, see www.utahhumanities.org and www.northsummitunite.org
