Third Thursday Food for Thought presentation – “Diné History’s Impact on Jewelry”

June 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

On Thursday, June 16, 2022, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” will feature “Diné History’s Impact on Jewelry” presentation by Nanibaa Beck, cosponsored by Arizona Humanities, Phoenix. This free online Zoom program will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).

Nanibaa Beck, a second-generation Diné (Navajo) jeweler, provides a history of Diné jewelry over the century, focusing on changes in each decade. She will relate the shifting techniques, styles, and meanings of the art over the years to important events in Diné history including the impact of boarding schools, training schools, and access to new styles and materials on Navajo jewelry over this expanded period of time. Being intricately connected to the creation process motivated Ms. Beck to become more knowledgeable about the multifaceted areas surrounding Native American art. In November 2013 she founded NotAbove Jewelry after an “aha moment” in which a small thank-you card project sparked the idea for the original language necklaces that connect to her Diné culture. Today, NotAbove reflects vibrant Native creative expressions and the growth of an Diné ‘Asdzáá (woman) as a metalsmith. This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities. It will not be recorded.
