Archaeology Cafe: Sonoran Desert Food and Lifeways, Past and Present (Phoenix)
January 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
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.
