Ritual running has played an important role in every Native American culture in the Southwest. Despite its importance, running often leaves little impact on the physical landscape. On the mesa tops of north-central Arizona, however, basalt boulders were cleared away to make safe running surfaces in the late 1200s and early 1300s.

Russell's research suggests that as people flocked to the Perry Mesa area from throughout the Southwest, they may have chosen to focus on what they had in common—ritual racing—and de-emphasize their differences.

Join us for the above presentation by Will Russell.

Reception to follow.

 

When:       Saturday, April 2, 2016. 11:00 a.m.

Where:     Amerind Foundation. Dragoon, AZ

Cost:         Free!

 

Will Russell's (ASU) Master's research focused on ritual foot racing in

north-central Arizona during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. His

current work is concerned with social inequality in ancient Mimbres society.

10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Join master watercolor artist Michael Chiago (Tohono O’odham) for this hands-on workshop. Michael Chiago is one of very few Southern Arizona Native painters to achieve national recognition. The welcoming appeal of his colorful paintings reaches far beyond the desert southwest, to portray a time and place that is distinctly the Sonoran Desert. His work provides a look at the way indigenous people of the Tucson Basin lived in the recent past and how they incorporate the same cultural traditions today. Michael was the recipient of the prestigious 2006 Arizona Living Treasure Award.

 

Cost: $140 per person (includes workshop supplies and box lunch).

 

The workshop is limited to 12 people, so you are encouraged to sign up early.
