Peoples of the Mesa Verde Region: Connecting the Past with the Present through Humanities Research

A three-week school teacher summer institute for twenty-five participants on the cultural history of the Pueblo Indian peoples of the American Southwest, from 1000 B.C. to the present.

Peoples of the Mesa Verde Region is a three-week institute for 25 school teachers that will be conducted by the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center from June 27 to July 17, 2010. The institute will provide American school teachers with an unequaled opportunity to trace the history of one of the continent's most enduring cultural groups--Pueblo Indians--from its deep past into the twenty-first century. The multidisciplinary field of anthropology provides the primary lens through which participants will examine both the ancient and modern Pueblo world. Authentic research experiences give participants the opportunity to learn first-hand how archaeologists conduct their work to reconstruct Pueblo history. The participation of Pueblo scholars and visits to a modern Pueblo community present a window into how Pueblo culture has endured over time and a glimpse into what Pueblo life and education practices are like today.
