Four thousand years ago, immigrant farmers introduced maize (corn) farming into what is today the southwestern United States. This marks the beginning of one of the world’s most innovative and resilient cultures: Pueblo Indian society. Dr. Varien will present the results of 35 years of research by the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, research conducted in partnership with Pueblo Indian Nations. This research reconstructs the deep history of Pueblo people and connects that history to our world today.
