Dr. Eric Blinman, NM Office of Archaeological Studies, will discuss puebloan prehistory.
Despite more than a century of research, Southwestern archaeologists still lack consensus about major issues of Puebloan culture history. Dr. Blinman explores the questions: Are the Tewa peoples direct descendants of ancestral Mesa Verde region populations or have they been long term residents of the Northern Rio Grande? Are both northern (Mesa Verde) and southern San Juan basin populations a single proto-Keresan cultural and linguistic group?
The lecture will be held at the Sandoval County Historical Society Museum (DeLavy House), Hwy 550 & Edmond Rd, Bernalillo, turn between I-Hop and Warrior Fuel. 1.75 miles west of I-25, exit 242.
