- Name: Kathleen A. Dahl
- Location: La Grande, Oregon, United States
I am an anthropologist at Eastern Oregon University who has been conducting research on how the Lewis and Clark Expedition has been interpreted in museums and historic sites. In short, I am interpreting the interpretation. I am expanding this type of research into other areas of the history of the American West, for example, the mining era and western newspapers. I now have two weblogs pertaining to this research: "Lewis and Clark Trail Watch" and "Pick and Shovel." My interest in how we interpret Lewis and Clark and other events in Western history grew out of my earlier research into how regional culture and history, particularly native culture and history, have been portrayed in museums and historic sites throughout the Pacific Northwest.
