STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Sun Valley Museum of Art will offer a free evening exhibition tour of its new BIG IDEA project “From the Colour of Its Bloom: Camas Prairie” at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. tonight.

Each tour will be limited to 10 participants and face masks and social distancing required.

Participants can enjoy a glass of wine as they learn about contemporary artists who have spent time on the prairie near Fairfield observing its unique landscapes, ecosystems, flora and fauna.

Those included in the exhibition include Derek No-Sun Brown, who grew up on the Fort Hall Reservation near Pocatello and participated in the annual ritual of camas harvesting. Also Judith Freeman, a fifth-generation Westerner and the author of two nonfiction books and five novels.

The museum is at 191 Fifth St. East in Ketchum.

  • Learn about some of the Native Americans who harvested camas bulbs on the prairie when Tony Tekaroniake Evans discusses the history of Native Americans in the Sun Valley area at 5:30 p.m. tonight on Zoom.

“Recent research has revealed that Native Americans have called Idaho home for over 16,000 years, utilizing native plants and animals for their livelihood,” said Kristin Fletcher, adult programs coordinator for the Hailey Public Library.

Evans, who studied cultural anthropology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, has written a book, “A History of Indians in the Sun Valley Area.”
