With Dr. Shane Doyle
Dr. Shane Doyle will provide insight into the ancient cultural history of the Northern Plains and Intermountain West. Synthesizing the archaeological data, genetic evidence, and contemporary cultural sensibilities, Dr. Doyle describes how Native people thrived for hundreds of generations in the rich, but climatically extreme landscape of the Bighorn Mountain region.
Dr. Shane Doyle, Apsáalooke, is an educational and cultural consultant who hails from Crow Agency, MT. Shane is an educator, archaeological and genetic researcher, curriculum designer, environmental advocate, performance art producer, and Plains Indian style singer. Currently, Shane is helping to lead the commemoration of Yellowstone’s 150th birthday with the installation of an Intertribal Teepee Village near Gardiner in August of 2022. Shane lives in Bozeman with his wife Megkian and their 5 children.
