THATCHER, AZ—Have you ever heard of a bent-wood box for holding fish oil? Do you know what a eulachon is? What do sea urchin eggs taste like? How is salmon like maize? Who is the “Trickster” in Pacific Northwest mythology? Where do mosquitoes come from? What is a potlatch for? You can have these questions and more answered for you at the “Discover Anthropology at the Discovery Park Campus” when EAC presents the slide show lecture Farmers of the Sea: Pacific Northwest Cultures on Saturday, November 3, at 6:30 p.m.

Discovery Park Campus Dean Harry Swanson will present this intriguing lecture about some of the peoples studied by Franz Boas, the “Father of American Anthropology.” This program will be delivered in the old Pioneer Schoolhouse, down by the Circle D Ranch House, on the Discovery Park Campus. “It is a rustic, but friendly, environment, and there is plenty of parking, so come on out and enjoy the show,” said Swanson.

The entire community is invited to attend the continuation of this comprehensive culture lecture series. For more information about the lecture series or about Discovery Park Campus, call 428-6260.
