This program is part of the Arizona Archaeological Society Desert Foothill Chapter's meeting.  FREE and open to all. In the 1870s a refined New England woman traveled with her lieutenant husband to the untamed Arizona Territory. Traveling in terrible conditions and initially horrified by the desert landscape, she eventually gave birth to the first Anglo child born at Fort Apache. Ultimately, Ms. Summerhayes came to love the starry nights, the clear air and the relative simplicity of life in Arizona.…

In 1921 the Hopi were told that “church people” petitioned Congress to stop their “pagan” dancing.  A platform was erected on the U.S.Capitol steps where both Houses of Congress assembled with their families to see the Hopi dancers.  Following the performance, Congress passed a Resolution giving the Hopi permission to carry on their dancing “for all time.”  The dancers continued to perform culminating in performances at Carnegie Hall in 1955. The Verde Valley Archaeology Center and Hopi Tribe jointly received a…

The great West that George Bird Grinnell first encountered in 1870 as a 21-year old man was shortly to disappear before his eyes. Nobody was quicker to sense the desecration or was more eloquent in crusading against the poachers, the hidehunters, and the disengaged U.S. Congress than George Bird Grinnell, the “Father of American Conservation.” Grinnell founded the first Audubon Society, cofounded the Boone and Crockett Club with Teddy Roosevelt, and led the effort to establish Glacier National Park. Audiences will…

In spite of being one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World,” humans have not always seen the Grand Canyon in a positive light. First seen by Europeans in the year 1540, the canyon was not comprehended easily. Throughout the entire exploratory era, lasting nearly 320 years, conquistadores, explorers, trappers and miners viewed the canyon as an obstacle to travel or even useless. None of these early visitors ever returned a second time. However, when the first geologist laid…

How did the Apache impact late prehistoric peoples? Research provides evidence of ancestral Apaches in the southern Southwest as early as A.D. 1300. Evidence comes from chronometric dates obtained from storage features (covered with grass or leaves), on Apache pottery, and from roasting pits, all in direct association with other types of Apache material culture. A continuous sequence of use from the A.D. 1300s through the late 1700s provides new insights into a western route into this region and the…

An ancient set of Indian paths and the natural flow of the Gila River created a major artery for travel through pioneer Arizona. The Gila provided a route for the earliest traders, including Toltecs of Mexico, who traded with the Anasazi and Hohokam. The intrepid Padre Francisco Garces, performed missionary work during six excursions along the trail. U.S. surveying expeditions, immigrants—such as the ill-fated Oatman family—and seekers of the California gold fields join the list. The journals, stories, songs and…
