Toys and Games of the Colorado Plateau – Cottonwood

March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Toys and games are as old as civilization itself and reflect the need all people have for fun and recreation. Ancient Native Americans were no exception. This presentation engages the audience with hands-on exploration of modern and ancient toys. We explore the history of familiar toys and discover some ancient toys and games that give clues to old Arizona cultures. Participants can make their own split-twig figures like those found at the Grand Canyon.

Chris and Sandy have been speaking about the land and people of the Colorado Plateau since 2012, after completing docent training at the Museum of Northern Arizona. In-depth research and related interviews have resulted in lectures to their fellow docents, local social and educational groups, and at public venues such as Riordan Mansion in Flagstaff.  Some topics are presented in costumes of the time period, and in every case with a thorough exploration of the events and personalities of the time from multiple points of view.
