People and Plants: Foraging in Oregon's Ancient High Desert

Well-preserved plant remains recovered from archaeological deposits present a rare opportunity to learn about the ancient resources used by Indigenous People in Oregon's Northern Great Basin. Join Jaime Kennedy, the museum's paleoethnobotanist, for a discussion of these seeds and other remains—and the information they contain about Oregon's earliest communities.
