CODY - While much of what is known about Native Americans originates from oral traditions and historical accounts, Laura Scheiber suggests that archaeologists should take a more central role in documenting Native culture.

In a presentation at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center titled "Conceiving the Wilderness: Image, Place, and Ritual in the Rocky Mountain West," Scheiber discusses her work related to the Shoshone Tribe. The talk will be Aug. 20 at 2:30 p.m. in the center's Coe Auditorium.

Scheiber is assistant professor with the Department of Anthropology and director of the William R. Adams Zoo Archaeology Laboratory at Indiana University. She is one of the 2009-2010 Resident Fellows at the Cody Institute for Western American Studies at the historical center.
