Founded in 1937 by William Shirley Fulton, the Amerind Foundation is a private nonprofit 501(c) (3) anthropological and archaeological museum and research center dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Native American cultures and their histories. Located in spectacular Texas Canyon, in the Little Dragoon Mountains of southeastern Arizona, the Amerind houses one of the finest private collections of Native American art and artifacts in the country. Join noted Amerind board member Mark Bahti for a guided tour of The Amerind Foundation’s archaeological and ethnographic collections, and enjoy a delicious lunch served on the museum grounds.
We’ll see examples of work by and about the groups we have discussed in the classroom. On the way to Amerind we’ll talk about ways in which Native and European approaches to and understanding of the land are changing (or not) and, in some cases, moving closer to one another.
