Join us on Zoom Tuesday, October 3, 2023, when Nicole Mathwich (San Diego State University) will discuss “Tame or Wild? Emergent Ranching Cultures of Spanish Colonial Pimería Alta.” This talk will explore the emergent animal husbandry culture in the Pimería Alta through the first introduction of livestock to the region through the Spanish mission system (1687–1833). Mathwich compares and contrasts faunal bone from five mission sites from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, and then we’ll go deeper into the site of Mission Guevavi and examine how levels of ferality were strategically employed at the mission.
