Washington State Historical Society: How Does a Place Get a Name-Workshop

Join Indigenous educator Owen Oliver (Quinault/Isleta Pueblo) for our “How Does a Place Get a Name” workshop, October 19th from 6-7:30pm.
In the workshop we will explore how a place gets a name and what the names of specific locations can teach us about values held by communities.
Participants will consider how we can use place names to enhance community connections and build strategies to engage with Tribes to revitalize place names.
This workshop is free with registration and open to the public. Teachers who attend the workshop will be eligible for clock hours toward continuing education requirements.
