FEBRUARY 22 – LEANNE SHEARER, CULTURAL RESOURCES OF THE KAIBAB PAIUTE TRIBE
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST
The Kaibab Paiute are a member of the larger Southern Paiute Nation which covers along the southern Great Basin and San Juan-Colorado River drainage. They trace their ancestry back over 10,000 years to the Desert Culture. At that time, the Great Basin of the Southwest dried up and the Kaibab Paiute strategy changed from big game hunting to small game hunting and plant gathering. About 1150 C.E. the Kaibab Paiute extended their geographic range to further into the Colorado Plateau. Ms. Shearer will delve into this history and further describe the cultural resource programs of the Kaibab Paiute tribe.
