On Tuesday, May 11, 2021, join Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s first in a series of Indigenous Interests presentations beginning with “Tohono O’odham Philosophy and Ethics” by Ruben Cu:k Ba’ak (Tohono O’odham). This free Zoom online presentation will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. ARIZONA/Mountain Standard Time (same as Pacific Daylight Time).

Ruben Cu:k Ba’ak is Curator of Education for the Tohono O’odham Nation’s Cultural Center and Museum in Topawa, Arizona. O’odham Himdag is the connection of all things. Our way of life and our responsibilities to our way of life. O’odham Himdag, it’s the simplicity in the connection of all things and our responsibility to that connection. It’s simply following the teachings of Our Big Brother I’itoi in how we live and treat all life, existence, and the balance of all things. In this first presentation of the “Indigenous Interests” series, Ruben interviews Tohono O’odham elders who talk about the O’odham Himdag, the destruction of land and archaeological sites in the traditional O’odham homelands both on and off of the Tohono O’odham Nation reservations, and how elders feel obligated to react to that destruction based on their Himdag upbringing.

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Indigenous Interests” free Zoom webinar series, hosted by Old Pueblo Board of Directors members Martina Dawley (Hualapai-Diné) and Maegan Lopez (Tohono O’odham) and made possible by a grant from Arizona Humanities, provides Native American presenters with a forum for discussing issues important to Indigenous peoples today.
