AZ Humanites: Pathways of Water – Historical Journeys Along Arizona’s Rivers

Water sustains life and has a significant role in our state’s history.

The myths and stories of our indigenous tribes are rich with its references. Immigrants trod and floated Arizona’s waterways enduring great peril. Government surveyors explored and mapped our river systems. Huge dams blocked their flow to create vast reservoirs. This program will share some of these great adventures and the music and stories that accompanied them.

This program is cohosted by Casa Grande Public Library – Downtown Branch. This is an in-person event.
