Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the program “How Did They Do That? Learning How to Adapt to a Harsh, New Land” scheduled on July 14 has been cancelled. We will try to re-schedule this program in the near future. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. Keep an eye on our calendar for this and other upcoming events.
For thousands of years, the Native inhabitants of the Great Basin not only survived, but also thrived in a landscape viewed as harsh and unforgiving by emigrants bound for California and Oregon.
Join BLM Native American Tribal Liaison Jessica Montcalm as she discusses the challenges faced by new emigrants, who had no experience of the American West. She will discuss how emigrants learned the skills and knowledge of the Native people who knew the land best.
