ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR | Jacy Sohappy, Taamamno Ilp Ilp (Red Hummingbird), is an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation and was born and raised in the Mission/Pendleton area.  She descends from the Cayuse, Nez Perce and Yakama Tribes.  She grew up in the tribal longhouse, traveling Indian country on the pow wow trail and medicine dances, learning how to preserve Native cultural identity and teachings from her grandmother, Loretta “Lonnie” Alexander (Pinkham).  Sohappy has followed in her grandmother’s footsteps as a gatherer, seamstress and painter.  These teachings have seeped into her artwork, expressing her dedication to preserving Native culture and identity for the future of our children. Jacy looks forward to working with all of you. One heart. One mind.

LOCATION | The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus.
