“Ishi: A Century Later” class starts Jan. 22, Benton Center

The class “Ishi: A Century Later” will be held at the LBCC Benton Center starting January 22.

This history class looks at one of the most amazing native stories from the West, taking place near Chico, California, where a small family group survived the extermination of their tribe in the 1860’s and hid for 40 years until only Ishi was left.

Class focuses on Ishi’s years in San Francisco and what they reveal of his nature and his Yahi cultural and spiritual resources, beliefs and practices that helped keep him sane, un-bitter and kind.

This four-week class meets Mondays from 7 to 8:50 p.m. at the LBCC Benton Center in Corvallis. Cost is $49.

For more information or to register, see the LBCC online schedule at www.linnbenton.edu, email albany@linnbenton.edu or call LBCC Community Education at 541-917-4840.
