Old Pueblo Archaeology Center: Third Thursday Food for Thought Presentation – Navajo Pueblitos of Dinetah
Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” online program will feature “Navajo Pueblitos of Dinetah” by archaeologist Ronald H. Towner, Ph.D.
This free Zoom online presentation will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time).
Pueblitos, as the name implies, are small masonry structures. In the ancestral Navajo homeland of Dinétah in northwestern New Mexico, more than 250 such structures and associated hogans have been documented. Once the pueblitos were thought to be the result of a massive immigration of Pueblo people fleeing the Spanish, but research in the past 2+ decades demonstrates significant variation in these sites over time. This presentation describes the variations and suggests important implications for understanding Diné (Navajo) cultural development and land use in the 18th century.
