PULLMAN, Wash. – Historic images of the Nez Perce people, or Nimiipuu, are on exhibit through July 31 at the Washington State University Libraries Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections.
 
“The National Park Service Nez Perce Historic Images Collection: A Dynamic Photographic Legacy of the Nimiipuu” will feature photos preserved by the park service and digitally hosted by WSU Libraries. Some artifacts on loan from the Nez Perce National Historical Park will be part of the display.
 
The exhibit is the project of the WSU graduate student course History 529: Interpreting History through Material Culture, taught by associate professor Rob McCoy. Students learn to present and interpret historical artifacts for a public audience.
