Pictograph Cave.  Ayme Swartz, Erika Blecha, Marty Lopez

Our journey to eastern Montana brought us to Pictograph Cave, near Billings, Montana. Much of the research here is focused on the pictographs and atrifacts; while our research is exploring this as well, we are also taking a look at the archaeology of the archaeologists! The WPA first excavated this site in the 1930s.

Tongue River at Oévemanâhéno

This beautiful photo was taken just east of Oévemanâhéno (Birney Day). Oévemanâhéno is located on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. The University of Montana was asked to map cabins that were homes for several Northern Cheyenne members starting in 1900 and as recent as the 1970’s. This is recognized as the most traditional village on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.
