Third Thursday Food for Thought – “Apache Warriors Tell Their Side” Presentation
December 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, December 16, 2021, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” free Zoom online dinnertime program will feature “Apache Warriors Tell Their Side” presentation by author-historian Lynda A. Sánchez. This free online presentation will be from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. (ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time, same as Pacific Daylight Time).
Eve Ball (1890-1984) was a noted New Mexico chronicler of Apache, Anglo and Hispanic history. Obtaining their trust over many years, she began interviewing over 67 of the participants and descendants of those implacable warriors who fought the Apache Wars. By listening to, rather than trying to talk over, the old-timers, Eve gathered fresh information and a differing point of view long before it was popular to do so. Historian and educator Lynda A. Sánchez will present background about Eve and her stubborn desire to learn from the Apaches and from their side of the fence, and will describe what it was like working side by side with this amazing woman.
