Heritage Society will present a look at UW research into the indigenous people of Kenmore

The Kenmore Heritage Society is hosting the virtual potluck online on Aug. 11, from 6:30-9pm with an enlightening look at the research project of summer intern Lena Rodriguez who is investigating the Coast Salish Peoples.

The Sts’ahp-absh band known as “the meanderers,” moved seasonally in search of food and spent winters on a waterway now known as the Sammamish River near where it joins Lake Washington.

Lena will be presenting her current progress, methodology and talk about the importance of restorative practices in the arts and humanities. Her presentation will also include a community building and awareness activity that will require attendees to provide an example of a piece of media of any type that has provided comfort during the last year.

Lena has an Associates in Art History with Honors from Southwestern Community College, Bachelors of Arts in Art History and Ancient Near East & Egyptology from UCLA with Latin Honors, and is currently a Masters student of Museology at the University of Washington. She has worked in museums, libraries, archives, art galleries, and arts organizations since she was 14 years old and was internationally published by the time she was 18 years old.

She is also a practicing multi-media artist and is working on a fantasy Young Adult series based on indigenous Meso-American mythology. She has been featured in FEM magazine, UCLA's feminist magazine, for her advocacy, academic and professional achievements and was a Wayland/GO-MAP scholar for the 2020-2021 school year. She will be presenting this educational session as part of her summer internship with the Kenmore Heritage Society.
