The people of the American Southwest have a rich cultural heritage that dates back thousands of years. This presentation will focus on the Pueblo People, and more specifically, the Jemez People. The instructor will begin with an orientation on Pueblo languages and cultures, before delving into his own experiences as a Jemez Pueblo Tribal Member. Artifacts and replicas will be utilized to discuss their usage and meaning in Pueblo Culture, while also explaining the reason why some Pueblo Peoples do not indulge in the sharing of cultural knowledge with “outsiders.” The Pueblo People employed very complex systems of ideas and practices that permitted them to survive in the xeric landscape of the American Southwest. These technological advances allowed them to create an assortment of ingenious things: turkey feather blankets, bone flutes, turquoise jewelry, pump drills. This presentation examines Pueblo material culture through the utilization of replicas derived from the archaeological record and technology known to still be used.
