ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Chris and Sandy are docents at the Museum of Northern Arizona and have been speaking about the land and people of the Colorado Plateau since 2012. In-depth research and related interviews have resulted in presentations to local social and educational groups, museum groups, public venues such as the Riordan Mansion State Park in Flagstaff, and AZ Speaks locations throughout Arizona. 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.
