CWC event receives grant from Wyoming Humanities Council

Aug 4, 2014 - From staff reports

The Wyoming Humanities Council has awarded grants to the Wyoming Association of Churches and Wyoming PBS.

The Wyoming Association of Churches was awarded $2,000 to present a panel Sept. 26 at the Intertribal Education and Community Center at Central Wyoming College in Riverton.

The panel, "One People, One Earth," will feature the Rev. Warren Murphy, the Rev. Lundberg, Wes Martel of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, Nelson White the pipe keeper of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, scientist Chris Ray of the University of Colorado Boulder and University of Wyoming hydrologist Ginger Paige.

During the panel, participants will reflect on and discuss the scientific, spiritual and ethical considerations of water resource management in the 21st century.

Wyoming PBS was awarded $2,000 for research funding for "The Blizzard of '49."

Award-winning producer Tom Manning will document the historic Wyoming weather event using personal interviews with ranching families who were affected by the storm as well as news archives, pictures and videos. The documentary is set to air in 2015 on Wyoming PBS.

The Wyoming Humanities Council is an independent non-profit organization funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities and the generous support of the Wyoming Legislature and private donations.
