Research being done by Crow Canyon archaeologists, with the generous help of supporters like you, is helping to shed new light on the impact and reach of ancient Chaco Canyon culture across the Southwest—and now we're ready to share what we've learned so far!
The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center will be presenting a symposium, "The Impact of Chaco Archaeology: Past and Present," on Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science's Ricketson Auditorium. The symposium will cover the importance of Chaco Canyon and Aztec Ruins to ancestral and modern Pueblo people, and how Crow Canyon's donor-and-participant—supported Northern Chaco Outliers Project is expanding our understanding of the spread and influence of Chacoan culture.
Featured speakers include Mark Varien, Ph.D., executive vice president of the Research Institute at Crow Canyon; Susan Ryan, Ph.D., director of archaeology at Crow Canyon; Erin Leigh Baxter, Ph.D., lecturer in the department of anthropology at the University of Colorado-Boulder; Steve Lekson, Ph.D., curator of archaeology at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History; and Theresa Pasqual, consultant with the Pueblo of Acoma in New Mexico. Seating is limited for this free symposium.
