Archaeology Cafe: Sonoran Desert Food and Lifeways, Past and Present (Phoenix)

January 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Knowledge-seekers of every kind are welcome at Archaeology Café at Changing Hands for a season of programs exploring the deep and diverse history of Phoenix and the greater Southwest in a jargon-free zone. Dr. Melissa Kruse-Peeples and Bernard Siquieros will explore “Sonoran Desert Food and Lifeways, Past and Present.”

The Sonoran Desert is definitely not a food desert, and has dozens of edible wild plants and ancient arid-adapted agricultural food crops. In this talk, Kruse-Peeples and Siquieros will provide an overview of the food history of the Sonoran Desert and ways you can enjoy many of the flavors of the desert today.

This program is supported by a grant from Arizona Humanities.
