The People of the Southwest

Learn about the geology of the southwest (going back to the actual formation of the landmasses) and consider its effect on the various cultures that settled in this region. Find out how those groups changed and evolved over time, looking specifically at the Hohokam, Mogollon, Mimbres and Anasazi peoples.

Also consider the Hopi, Tohono O’odham, Apache, Navajo and Rio Grande Pueblos and discover the ways their cultures reflected the land and were affected by the land. Our discussion will include the arrival of the European and their reaction and interaction with the land and people they encountered up to Arizona Statehood in 1912.
