    Date: March 17, 2017
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM PDT

    Event Description:
    On Friday, March 17, at 7:00 p.m. at the Josephy Center, Bob Chenoweth of the Nez Perce National Historical Park will talk about his extensive research on dugout canoes--especially Nez Perce dugout canoes. According to Chenoweth, Lewis and Clark noted few horses but scores of canoes on the Columbia River. Only a handful of historic Nez Perce canoes exists, and the National Park owns most of them. 
    Bob will be joined by Nez Perce elder Allen Pinkham Sr., who will talk about canoes and culture. And Allen, Jr. who worked as an artist in residence here last summer, will be along to begin scoping out his own project--carving a full-size Nez Perce Dugout Canoe here in Joseph this summer!
    Admission to the Friday evening program is by donation. A Saturday morning workshop is being organized to allow as many as six people join Allen Jr. in working on model dugouts. Local logger Jim Zacharias has promised to provide three foot “blanks” for workshop participants to work with. For more information on this workshop, please contact Rich Wandschneider at 541-432-0505
