The Darby Library will present “Before the Horse: Northern Rockies Lifestyles” with Kae Cheatham on Thursday, January 24th at 6:00 PM. Explore the fascinating lifestyle of the American Indian long before the modern horse appeared 280 years ago. Cheatham, an author, photographer and researcher, takes us through those centuries before the horse when the extensive use of dogs was most prevalent. To illustrate the program, Cheatham uses maps and photos, as well as animal replicas, with their bundles and sledges (travois). She discusses how and why people traveled and hunting procedures. Come and learn about the resourcefulness of our region’s first people. The presentation is a Montana Conversations program sponsored by Humanities Montana.
