Oral History interview with Katherine Blossom, Western Shoshone from Fallon, NV, on 08/28/2014

Description

Katherine Blossom was born in Shurz, Nevada and was part of the Dubadiccada (Pine-nut eaters) Tribe from the Reese River area.  She tells us about going to school in Fallon and then UNR, and also how she helped Corbin Harney at Puhambaa (healing water).  She also speaks of her time with the Elko County School District where she retired from, and a story of a girl who she helped to achieve her dreams.  She also gives us insight into her mother’s time at the Stewart Indian School, as well as, an instance of her getting sick and being helped with traditional ceremonies and medicine.  She then goes on to give advice to the younger generations on ways they should carry themselves in life.
