Program “Plants Used by the Ancient People of the Upper Green River Basin” by Special Guest Speaker John Mionczynski
John Mionczynski is a retired wildlife consultant with over 25 years working in the Wyoming back country from Yellowstone to the high country of the Wind Rivers, to the Red Desert. He has trapped and radio collared Grizzlies, lived (and migrated) with bands of bighorn sheep, studied mountain goats, and monitored the high lakes of the Wind Rivers for pollutants for the U.S. Forest Service. He was also a wilderness outfitter for 15 years. Although he packed some food in during these years his hobby was finding food in the wild and often came out after a few weeks with the same food he’d brought from town. He currently works with the indigenous tribes of the region documenting with video footage elders speaking of traditional foods, medicines, and stories of pre-reservation life for the Native Memory Project, a Wyoming based organization. John also functions as an ethnobotanist for the “Shoshone Ancestral Food Gathering Group” on the Wind River Reservation, and teaches ethnobotany field classes during the summer months.
