Wednesday, November 7,held at Park Photo, 115 S. Main St., Livingston. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Co-presented by Shane Doyle, educator and member of the Crow (Apsaålooke) Tribe, and John Zumpano, local photographer. This is a new venue with space for more chairs and no stairs. We invite people to sponsor a chair—more information will be given during program.
Shane Doyle, Ed.D, is a Crow tribal member and educator who grew up in Crow Agency. A singer of Northern Plains tribal style of music for 30 years, Shane also holds a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction, and completed a post-doctoral appointment in genetics with the University of Copenhagen, Denmark in 2016. With 20 years of teaching experience, Dr. Doyle is a full-time educational and cultural consultant, designing American Indian curriculum for many organizations, including Montana public schools, the National Park Service, and the Museum of the Rockies.
He serves on the Board of Directors for the Bozeman-based Extreme History Project, Hopa Mountain, the Montana Conservation Corps, and the Archaeological Conservancy, as well as on the Montana Arts Council culture and aesthetics committee and the Governors Parks in Focus Committee. Dr. Doyle was a founding member of the Montana Wilderness Association's Hold Our Ground Campaign in 2017, and speaks throughout the region on the topics of northern Plains Tribal culture and the importance of public lands in Montana.
Dr Doyle was instrumental in the repatriation of the Anzick Clovis Child near Wilsall in Park County and worked as a consultant and actor for the History Channel’s “Lost Treasure of the Little Bighorn Battle,” set to premiere in the fall of 2018. He and his wife Megkian and their five children, ages 5 – 14, reside in Bozeman.
John Zumpano is a freelance event, landscape and fine art photographer based in Livingston. A Butte, Montana native, he spent almost 30 years as a motion picture technician. In 2006 Zumpano returned to Montana to live fulltime and embraced and explored digital still photography. Over the years his affinity for documenting Livingston and the surrounding landscape has included an annual trip to Crow Agency MT for Crow Fair Powwow, Parade, and Rodeo. The visual splendor of this Native American reunion hosted by the Apsaålooke people is something to behold.
Having first attended in 1989, Zumpano has thousands of images from which to draw on as he attempts to share this beautiful cultural tradition. His photos have appeared in the Montana Quarterly, Big Sky Journal, and Indian Country Today’s Powwow Issue. Zumpano has exhibited at The Danforth Gallery, Wheatgrass Saloon, Livingston Depot Center, The Shane Center and Livingston Center for Art and Culture. His photos also appear in numerous websites and social media.

Montana Department of Transportation Proposes Erosion Mitigation Project North of Emigrant on U.S. Highway 89
Lori Ryan, Public Information Officer, (406) 444-6821, [email protected]
EMIGRANT - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to stabilize a section of roadway embankment with riprap between the Yellowstone River and U.S. Highway 89 (US-89).
The project area is located in Park County along US-89 about 1.2 miles north of Emigrant. The project begins at reference post 32.0 and extends north 0.3 miles, ending at reference post 32.3.
Proposed work includes excavation of the highway embankment, installation of riprap and geotextile, fencing, recontouring the embankment, and finishing with topsoil and seeding.
The work is not expected to significantly impact roadway travelers as the proposed work will occur off the paved surface adjacent to US-89. Travelers should expect slower speeds and a work zone during construction.
The purpose of the project is to stabilize a section of embankment on US-89 prior to river erosion destabilizing the embankment and impeding traffic flow.
The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in late winter or early spring of 2019, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
For more information, please contact Butte District Administrator Jeff Ebert at (406) 494-9625 or Project Design Engineer Tyrel Murfitt at (406) 444‑6227. Members of the public may submit written comments to the Montana Department of Transportation Butte office at P.O. Box 3068, Butte, MT 59702-3068, or online at:
Please note that your comments are for project UPN 9673000. Alternative accessible formats of this information will be provided upon request by contacting Alice Flesch, Human Resources and Occupational Safety Division, P.O. Box 201001, Helena, MT 59620; (406) 444-9229; TTY (800) 335-7592; fax (406) 444-7243; or e-mail to [email protected] .
