Marley Tanner
is a pharmacy student whose great-grandfather, Lassau Red Horn, was highly respected for his knowledge of indigenous plant and animal species in the Flathead Valley. He is pictured in the poster behind Tanner during one of his visits to UM’s Biological Station in 1907, where he helped identify the medicinal purposes of native plants. “He’s the reason I came here and pursued medicine. Him and my mother.”
