Panelists Nakia Williamson, Director of the Nez Perce Tribe’s Cultural Resources Program; Trevor Bond, Associate Dean, WSU Libraries; and WSU Students Nakia Cloud, Ila Pinkham, and Payton Sobotta will share their work to preserve and expand traditional Nimiipuu knowledge through the objects, documents, and photographs of the Lucullus V. McWhorter Collection. Audio and video interpretations produced by the panelists and informed by Nimiipuu language and archival sources are available online through the Plateau People’s Web Portal:
