Oral history interview with Katherine Blossom, Western Shoshone from Elko, NV on 07/10/2017

Description

Katherine Blossom addresses students at the Shoshone Community Language Initiative (SCLI) program at Great Basin College. Katherine Blossom begins her discussion by describing the benefits of learning the language. She speaks about how her mother and others were punished at boarding schools for speaking their native language, and as a result she was denied the opportunity to learn it growing up. She then goes on to sing a song on the hand drum. Afterward, she begins to speak about the different native plants and other materials that traditional Western Shoshones would use.

Presented at the 2017 Shoshone Community Language Initiative summer youth program (SCLI 17).
