Short Course: Overview of Southwestern tribes

Presented by the Heard Museum Guild, three information-packed half-day sessions focus on the Southwest and the first Americans who inhabited this land from prehistoric times to the 21st century.

Participants will learn about the Southwest and the first Americans from the prehistoric peoples to their historic descendants to the people today, who continue to blend their ancient traditions with the challenges of the 21st century.  The aim of the course is to promote respect for Native people and an appreciation of their art and cultures.
