Sacred Smoke and Other Substances


Join archaeologist Shannon Tushingham as she shares her research on psychoactive plant used for thousands of years by ancient societies in the Americas and beyond. Tushingham, who conducts her research at Washington State University, will explain how chemical residue analysis, ancient periodontics research and sacred tobacco studies with contemporary Native communities help her uncover new insights into historical use of substances. This event is part of the museum’s annual Fall Archaeology Talks series. This year’s theme is New Directions in the Archaeology of Western America, featuring three lectures by experts in the field.
