JOSEPH — There are still a few spots left in Roger Amerman’s “Native American Featherwork” workshop, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture.

The one-day workshop begins at 9 a.m.

Workshop numbers are limited by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Josephy Center’s concerns for health and safety. Masks are required.

The workshop fee is $75.

Amerman, who taught a popular Plateau beading workshop here last year, is an enrolled citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, a former Park Ranger with the U.S. National Park Service at the Whitman Mission National Historic Site, in Walla Walla, Wash. and a highly accomplished artist whose work has been featured throughout the United States, including at the Museum of the American Indian, Washington, D.C.

He has developed strong associations and ties with Umatilla, Yakama and the Nez Perce communities through educational and working activities. Roger lives with his Nez Perce wife on her reservation in north-central Idaho, and has written, lectured and taught across the West.
