Description

Logan Hebner, author and Michael Plyler, director of Zion Canyon Field Institute

Our two speakers provide us with an illustrated guide to their book Southern Paiute: A Portrait. During the course of their research, writer Hebner and photographer Plyler interviewed 30 Southern Paiute elders from across their homelands in the Great Basin, Colorado Plateau, and Mojave Desert. The resulting discussion ranges across ancient myths and histories to contemporary political issues, and is presented this evening with a special focus on the regional Paiute of Las Vegas, Chemehuevi, Pahrump, and Moapa.
