A Comprehensive Study of the Ancient Puebloans of the Desert Southwest: Part 1 of 4

Join professional educator, Gordon McCall, MA for this four-part series of narrated educational video programs that follow the Ancient Pueblo People (formerly known as Anasazi) from their origins in Asia and Chaco Canyon to the challenges of the modern world. Their social, political, economic and religious evolution in this place for over 1,000 years will be traced as we contemplate their mysterious decline and collapse by the 12 century.

Other topics include Ancient Puebloan philosophy and rituals, means of survival, culture, architecture, social and political structures, dispersions around the Southwest, and threats from Europeans.

Interactive introductions and post-viewing discussions are included in each of the four parts. Part one focuses on Chaco Canyon, birthplace and crucible of an indigenous society and culture that thrived, and the video will show the origins and migrations of the earliest American indigenous people into the Americas.

Series dates: Part 2–April 20, Part 3–April 27, Part 4 – May 4

Presentation at 12 PM only.
