“A Visit with an 1879 American Fur Company Trader”

(June 19, 2019)

Montana Conversations program “A Visit with an 1879 American Fur Company Trader” with Greg Smith on Friday, June 21, at 7 p.m.

In this living history performance, Smith brings to life the adventures and stories of James W. Schultz through the fictitious character of Jim Deakins. The year is 1879 and through Jim Deakins, the audience will share in the adventures of the Blackfeet and their enemy, the Crow; hunt the last of the great bison herds; and enjoy stories of that “foolishness” called Yellowstone National Park.

Greg Smith lives in Bozeman and was a Ranger Naturalist and Backcountry Ranger in Glacier National Park for nearly 20 years. A longtime believer in the power of education, Smith now works with kids and adults as a storyteller, naturalist and historian.

This presentation is free to the public.

Funding for Montana Conversations is provided by Humanities Montana through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Montana’s Cultural Trust, and private donations.
