On UM News this week, we’ll tell you about how one UM student planned a blood drive to make up for the fact that she can’t donate because of health reasons. A UM alum helped organize another event involving glass recycling at Imagine Nation Brewing. Also, some UM students are putting their degrees to work in an upcoming Anthropology field trip to help out the Bridge River Indian Band. This show was directed by Briane White and produced by Tessa Nadeau.

Archaeology Field Schools

November 7, 2019

In 2020, the University of Montana’s School of Anthropology will be sending students on a field school excavation of a┬ápit house occupied for 17 generations in British Columbia by the Bridge River Indian band. Meanwhile, graduate students are in the lab processing findings from the field school conducted at the Moon-Randolf historical homestead over the summer of 2019.

Doctoral candidate Nikki Manning led the field school over the summer. Manning took UM News on a tour of the homestead and discussed some of the findings from the site, as well as giving us a close-up look at how archaeologists process artifacts and other findings. Manning says that while the work done with the Bridge River band will be physical, much of the School of Anthropology’s work with local Native American groups involves oral and written histories.

Innovation Factory

November 7, 2019

In this story Griffin Rerucha tells us a little bit about the new space opening up in the UC. Co-director of the Innovation factory Brad Allen says this spot was created so students could chase their dreams in an environment with all the resources necessary. This new space will do tutorials on how to use tools like laser cutters, 3D printers and more. After completion of these classes you can get a badge that says you know how to use this piece of equipment. The Innovation Factory is located above the bookstore in the UC and is open now.
