“The 1541 O’odham Annihilation of Vázquez de Coronado’s Southern Arizona Townsite and Other New Coronado-Era Discoveries” Online Presentation
August 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, August 17, 2023, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” program will feature “The 1541 O’odham Annihilation of Vázquez de Coronado’s Southern Arizona Townsite and Other New Coronado-Era Discoveries” presentation by archaeologist Deni J. Seymour, Ph.D. This free Zoom presentation will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 pm ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).
The Arizona Coronado Project continues to astound as expedition sites are found in improbable valleys, as evidence reveals encounters with unexpected Native groups, artifacts are uncovered in Arizona that are unknown from other Coronado sites, and excavated archaeological features demonstrate the beginnings of a permanent European settlement. There is also clear evidence of the battle, described in documents, that annihilated the region’s first Spanish townsite and contributed to the termination of the 1539-1542 Coronado expedition as a whole. Dr. Deni Seymour is an award-winning author of seven books and over 110 articles. In addition to her previous discoveries of the site where Apache Chief Juh ambushed US Army Lt. Cushing the 1871 and several important Spanish colonial period sites, recently she has identified five archaeological sites of the Coronado expedition on four stream drainages.
At Dr. Seymour’s request, Old Pueblo will not post or distribute a recording of this presentation.
