Ron Garritson will share his knowledge of Plains Indian sign language on June 14 at 1 p.m. at Pictograph Cave State Park.
While living on and near the Crow Reservation in the 1970s, Garritson observed Crow elders using Plains Indian sign language and went on to spend the next 30-plus years of his life reading, researching and learning to use more than 1,500 signs.
He has served as a sign language consultant for theater and film and gives speaking engagements all over the West. He is currently a park ranger at Pompeys Pillar National Monument and finds time to teach courses on sign language at MSU Billings.
