Mineral Identification with Coyote Short

June 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Coyote Short PG can identify rocks, minerals and Native American artifacts.   Bring in your specimens and she will help you identify them!

Coyote Short is a Professional Geologist, licensed in Idaho. She is one-half Paiute-Modoc Indian and one-half French. Coyote is the last in her line to carry the ancient knowledge handed down to her by Grandmother Raven on the Paiute side and Grandmother Hallie on the Modoc side. Born in central Idaho, she has lived in various parts of the northwest, and now makes her home in Boise, as her lineage is with the Boise Valley Tribes.
