The demonstrations will include information on how the horse influenced Native American culture and he’lll show beaded, horsehair and rawhide bridles, horse masks, a mountain lion saddle balnket and more.

Steve has followed the Native American lifestyle and is known around the country for his knowledge of the culture and how the people lived in the Great Basin Region of North America.

He will present at the newly remodeled visitor center at the Battlefield Saturday, July 7, at noon and 3pm, and Sunday, July 8, at noon. There will also be an evening campfire program at the US Forest Service May Creek Campground Saturday evening at 7pm.
