The Kalispel Tribe, Washington State University, and Far Western Anthropological Group are collaborating to offer a field school in northeastern WA along the ancestral homelands of the Kalispel people (known today as Usk, WA). This field school will have a strong focus on cultural resource management, tribal-led research, and Indigenous archaeology. It will also emphasize geoarchaeology and paleoethnobotany. The field school runs from May 22-June 16 and afterward folks will have all the skills needed to work as a technician. Undergraduate tuition is $3380 with a $564 fee. It’s a beautiful location on the edge of the northern Rocky Mountains and we will be camping, though we will have showers, facilities, kitchen access, cell service, and wifi!

And please email myself (firstname.lastname@example.org), Mario Zimmerman (email@example.com), or Cassady Fairlane (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions. Applications are due March 1 though it doesn’t cost anything to apply! Finally, please consider sharing!
