October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Frederick, Sharonah

Too often the claim is heard that there is very little ancient history or literature in the United States. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it is the Hopi epics of the wanderings of Long Sash and the exploits of the Koshare twins; the Navajo legends that connect the cultures of the Southwest with the great late-Medieval stories of Toltec-Aztec Mexcio; or the adventures of Spanish men and women who deserted Francisco de Coronado's expedition in protest over…

November 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Parsons Yazzie, Evangeline

In 1864, Navajo people were forced to walk over 450 miles to Fort Sumner in eastern New Mexico.  Imprisoned on a 40-square mile reservation for four long years the people suffered from hunger, loneliness, illnesses, and severe environmental conditions. On June 1, 1868, U.

The Long Walk has been collected in historical…

The Mighty Colorado River: From its Sources to the Sea

November 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Turner, James

Jim Turner has traced the Green and Colorado rivers from their beginnings as clear bubbling glacial springs high in the mountains, then through roaring canyons in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada, and finally to the salt flats in Mexico. Stunning photographs tell the story of the rivers’ two thousand miles of scenic wonders, geography, wildlife, history, recreation, politics, and local culture. Before retiring from the Arizona Historical Society, Jim Turner worked with more than 70 museums in every corner of the…
