Cultural History of Bison in Glacier with Park Archeologist Brent Rowley

April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free
Two bison eating grass with mountains in the background.

Details: Join Glacier National Park Archeologist Brent Rowley and learn about the complex relationship of bison and people from the end of the Pleistocene to the late 19th Century based on ongoing archeological research undertaken by the park’s Cultural Resources Program.

People often think of bison as being only a plains animal, but they inhabited the mountain environments of Glacier as well! Bison played a central role to the Indigenous cultures of the region, so where there were bison, there were people trying to hunt them. This project attempts to tell the story of interactions between people and bison in the high country of Glacier based on nearly 13,000 years archeological evidence in the region.

Join Executive Director, Doug Mitchell, on Zoom and have a discussion with Park Archeologist Brent Rowley. Please register for the event using the form below. Registration is limited.
