Where We Were, Where We Are: Nisenan Speaker Series
Monday, October 21, 2019
Shelly Covert, Spokesperson for the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe and Executive Director California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project (CHIRP) will recap highlights from the previous library grant collaboration and share the exciting projects we'll accomplish this time around. She will talk about the upcoming 10th Annual Nisenan Heritage Day and accompanying Art Reception at the Nevada City Winery on Nov 1st and 2nd.
This talk is part of a four-part speaker series. The Library and the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan are proud to partner on the project, “The Voice of the Nisenan: We Are Still Here.” This grant, funded by the Library Services and Technology Act and administered by the California State Library, seeks to create opportunities for the public to learn about Nisenan culture, history, and language. Other components of this project include Nisenan-language picture books and an online collection of Nisenan language, films, interactive GIS map, and more.
