Museum to host events in Coulee Dam

 


The Colville Tribal Museum in Coulee Dam is hosting a series of events coming up this summer.

Lawney Reyes will be at the museum at 1 p.m. Aug. 3.

“Lawney Reyes is a celebrated Native American sculptor, designer, curator and memoirist based in Seattle,” reads a description of the museum events. “His writing and sculpture draw great influence from his Sinixt culture, part of the Colville Confederation of Tribes of Northeast Washington. He will be at the Colville Tribal Museum for a book signing.”

Bill Layman will be at the museum on August 24 at 1 p.m.

“Bill Layman has written three books that delve into the history of the West’s mightiest river. In addition to the books, he helped curate museum programs about the Columbia, helped form groups to protect it, and worked to bring river-related sculptures to Wenatchee.”

Colville tribal member Julie Edwards will host a basket weaving training Sept. 14 and 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both dates.

The events are presented in part by the tribal History and Archaeology Program. The dates to attend are limited to first-come, first-serve.

Contact Museum to sign up at 633-0751 or email: ctmuseum@couleedam.net.
