About the Event

Reconsidering the "Discoverers": Native Perspectives on the "Discovery" of Themselves and Their Land by Deni Seymour, April 2nd from 2 pm to 4 pm

Until now Coronado's Arizona route has defied discovery for 480 years. We'll convey the discovery process and examine exploration and its consequences with special relevance to the O'odham who were central to an expedition in which they were previously considered inconsequential. They will provide personal insights into the events surrounding the expedition and the implications for their ancestors and their community today.

Of local and international interest this project steps outside long-held assumptions and considers alternative views, with data grounded in three archaeological sites. We move beyond misconceptions, allowing for the wonder of exploration while considering immediate & long-term consequences for the "discovered". This 2-hour-long program includes videos supplemented by an interactive panel presentation to invite and maximize audience input.

Snacks will be served. $15 per lecture. Children 6 and under are free.  A portion of the proceeds supports our education and preservation programs. B.Y.O.C. – bring your own chair or sit at one of our picnic tables.  This lecture will take place outdoors in our large picnic area.   Admission to this lecture includes all day entrance into the park and the historic buildings.
