Lifeways of the Southern Paiutes
Shanandoah Anderson is a Southern Paiute from the Shivwits Band in Utah. She was raised very traditional and learned everything from survival skills, native foods, plants, crafts, hide tanning, weapons, games, beadwork, quillwork, and sign language from listening to the elders on Paiute history, culture and beliefs. She taught at various reservation schools for K-12 classes on cultural crafts and activities. She is the editor and one of the illustrators for her father LaVan Martineau’s book: The Southern Paiute: Legends, Lore, Language, and Lineage.
Shanandoah will be doing a presentation called “Lifeways of the Southern Paiutes” about the rich cultural history of the Southern Paiute tribes of Southern Nevada, Utah, California, and Arizona. She will share insight about many aspects of the Southern Paiute peoples.
