LECTURE SERIES CONTINUES

The Allure of Chaco

 


On July 28 at 7:00 pm, Aztec Ruins Lecture Series features The Allure of Chaco: Gambling, Exotica, Astronomy, and the Control of a Region. In his talk, speaker Rob Weiner will present his recent research to describe how gambling (as heard in oral traditions) brought together groups from across the Chaco world. In tandem with stimulating sensory rituals of sound, taste, and sight and dramatic displays of astronomical knowledge, Weiner’s research offers new insight into the power underlying the Chaco culture’s regional influence across the American Southwest.
