Museum lectures

The Carbon County Historical Society & Museum will host a lecture on rock art in the region by archaeologist Larry Loendorf, July 25 at 7 p.m. His presentation will focus on the Northern Plains Indian belief that buffalo lived in underground homes. Access to these homes was through caves or a crevice in the rock. Paintings in caves are associated with this belief. An important part of the buffalo homes is their association with the sun and its path through the sky to the underworld. Winter solstice sunrise and sunset is intimately related to the path of the buffalo into their underground homes. The museum is located at 224 N Broadway in Red Lodge. This presentation is open to the public. There is a $2 admission charge for nonmembers. Museum members are free. Call 406-446-3667 for more information or see our website at carboncountyhistory.com
