Join us at the Nez Perce Homeland Longhouse and Visitor Center. Meet the creators of our brand new interpretive displays and experience the "Sharing Blankets" fiber art exhibition.
The Longhouse Sharing Blankets Exhibition aims to generate a discussion on the significance of the blanket as symbol in contemporary Northwest Native culture. The exhibition will be shaped by traditional Native aesthetics and by the individual Native identity of each artist. Each artist will create a new piece of artwork for this gathering in May that is inspired by the concept of the blanket. This artwork will be displayed within the Longhouse around the wash, which contains soil from various sacred sites in the Northwest. This year's exhibiting artists include: Joe Feddersen (Colville)
, Britt Rynearson (Colville)
, Celeste Whitewolf (Umatilla)
, Paige Pettibon (Flathead Salish)
, Roquin-Jon Siongo (Chamoro)
