Flock to the 2021–2022 Café to learn about
Throughout human history, birds have captivated us.
From ceremony and comestible to clothing and companionship, our winged friends have always held significance in our lives. In the ancient Southwest, as elsewhere, human-avian relationships had important social, ritual, economic, and political dimensions.
Come explore these complex relationships by examining bird remains, feather textiles, painted pottery, petroglyphs, and more, with our guest experts as your guides. You’ll gain greater insight into how the region’s peoples interacted with a variety of different birds—from turkeys to macaws—across centuries. You won’t find that in Peterson, Kaufman, or Sibley!
Archaeology Café is made possible by The Smith Living Trust.
