Yolo Basin Foundation will begin its monthly Flyway Nights speaker series on Thursday, November 8 at 7 p.m. with “Native American Ethnography of the Central Valley, Specifically of the Patwin” presented by Roshanne Bakhtiary, UC Davis Ph.D. candidate and President of the Center for Archaeological Research at Davis. Ethnography is the branch of anthropology that focuses on the study of people and culture. Roshanne will take us back in time to the Central Valley before the Gold Rush and the Spanish missions to discover the native people that lived here. How did they live? What did they eat? And, how do anthropologists learn this information? Zooming in from the Central Valley as a whole, Roshanne will focus on the Patwin who lived west of the lower Sacramento River, in the historic Yolo Basin and along Putah Creek.

Roshanne is a fifth year Ph.D. candidate in Archaeology at the Department of Anthropology at UC Davis. Her dissertation focuses on the shifting food choices of ancient hunter-gatherers living in the San Francisco Bay area throughout prehistory. Generally, her academic interests include human behavioral ecology, experimental archaeology and stable isotope analysis. She received her bachelor's degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2013 and worked in professional archaeology for two years before pursuing graduate school.

Flyway Nights is a monthly speaker series highlighting environmental issues, natural history of Northern California, and current research topics in conservation. Yolo Basin Foundation hosts Flyway Nights the first Thursday of the month from November to April at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, 45211 County Road 32B (Chiles Road). Note that only this November event is on the second Thursday of the month.

A $5 donation to support the Foundation’s wetland education programs is suggested. Yolo Basin Foundation members are free. For the complete schedule and more information, visit yolobasin.org/flywaynights or call Yolo Basin Foundation at (530) 757-3780.
