Stacia Morfin is Lolo Pass Visitor Center’s Artist in Residence Sept. 13–14
KAMIAH, ID - The Lolo Pass Visitor Center, located on the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests off of U.S. Highway 12 at the Idaho/Montana state line, will welcome Stacia Morfin for the visitor center’s Artist in Residence program on Friday, Sept. 13 and Saturday, Sept. 14. Morfin will be at the visitor center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (PDT) each day sharing Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) history and culture with visitors at Lolo Pass.
Morfin will be accompanied by her mentors Solo Greene, a member of the Nez Perce nation; and Maurice “Pistol Pete” Wilson, a Nimiipuu veteran, elder, leader, and cultural consultant. Together, they will provide hands–on learning opportunities and demonstrate traditional singing, drumming, dancing, and artwork during their residency at Lolo Pass.
Morfin’s vision is to unite all people with an integrated approach to intercultural understanding. She believes in providing a platform to ensure Nimiipuu are telling their own story with accuracy and integrity while preserving geo–heritage, historical attractions, culture, and tradition.
