Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought”

September 18, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” dinner featuring the presentation “Chiricahua Apaches in Myth and History” with Cochise College-Douglas History and Anthropology Instructor Rebecca Orozco at Karichimaka Mexican Restaurant, 5252 S. Mission Rd., Tucson

            6 to 8:30 p.m. Free (Order your own dinner off of the restaurant’s menu)

            As the last Native American group to reach a peace accord with the U.S. government, the Chiricahua Apache were often featured in the press. Famous warriors Geronimo and Naiche were photographed many times. Their story has been the basis of numerous feature films. The story of their conflict first with the Spaniards and Mexicans who claimed their homeland, and later with the Americans expanding into the region in a policy of Manifest Destiny, has become a mix of history and heresy. The full story never will be completely known. This presentation contains a collection of historic photos from the end of an era – the late 1800s – that tell the story of the clash of the people trying save their lifeway and homeland and the people who believed the land was empty and open for settlement.

            Those wishing to attend must call 520-798-1201 and must have their reservations confirmed before 5 p.m. Wednesday September 17 because the fire-safety ordinance limits attendance. There is no entry fee but guests are asked to purchase their own dinners so that the restaurant won’t charge Old Pueblo for their seats, and donations will be requested to benefit Old Pueblo’s educational efforts.
