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

Join professional educator, Gordon McCall, MA for this final session of a four-part series of narrated educational video programs that follow the Ancient Pueblo People 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. In part four, the Pueblo People face their most substantial survival challenge in their history initiated by the Spanish Conquistador’s invasion in the 16th century.  It commenced over 400 years of threat of annihilation, destruction, and persecution followed by Anglo pioneers seeking Pueblo lands and social/political domination.   Learn how the Pueblo People’s history of unity and pride have served them (more or less) in adapting and prevailing to the present day.
