“Third Thursday Food for Thought”
September 15, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, September 15, 2016, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” dinner presentation will be “A Boot in the Door: Pioneer Women Archaeologists of Arizona” with Dr. Nancy Parezo, at El Molinito Mexican Restaurant, 10180 N. Oracle Rd., in Tucson from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The men who explored Arizona are legends in the history of the region and of anthropology, but what about the women who accompanied them or explored by themselves? Did you know that Matilda Coxe Stevenson was a member of the first official government survey of Canyon de Chelly or that Emma Mindeleff surveyed ruins in the Verde Valley while Theresa Russell helped her husband locate Hohokam sites? Probably not, for none are listed in “official” histories. Learn about the hidden pioneer archaeologists of the 19th century and honor Arizona’s unsung heroines of science. Dr. Nancy Parezo is a Professor of American Indian Studies and Anthropology at the University of Arizona and an Associate Curator of Ethnology at the Arizona State Museum. The program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
Guests may select and purchase their own dinners from the restaurant’s menu. There is no entry fee but donations will be requested to benefit Old Pueblo’s educational efforts. Because seating is limited in order for the program to be in compliance with the Fire Code, those wishing to attend must call 520-798-1201 and must have their reservations confirmed before 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before the program date.
