Kinishba Ruins

Kinishba Ruins


Join us for a tour of Kinishba, a Western Pueblo site located on the White Mountain Apache Reservation in East Central Arizona on Saturday, May 18, 2013. We will meet Dr. John Welch, our guide, Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the Ft Apache Museum where we will pay a fee to visit the area. We then will go to Kinishba, which has a similar architectural style to Grasshopper and Q-Ranch pueblos. After our visit to Kinishba, we will then have lunch (pack your own) at a “not often visited” rock art site. We then can go back to tour Ft. Apache, including both the prehistoric and historic components.  And, if time permits, Dr. Welch mentioned the possibility of visiting an unexcavated pueblo nearby.  The museum/cultural center is about 1 hour 40 minutes from Globe or about 4 hours from Tucson. You may want to spend Saturday night in Pinetop or the Hon-Dah Casino, or even back to Globe. Those spending Saturday night in Globe can visit the partially re-constructed Salado pueblo of Besh-be-gowa on Sunday prior to returning to Tucson. Hopefully Dr. Welch will have copies of his newest (this Spring!) publication on Kinishba for sale. You must be a member of AAHS in order to participate on this trip. Contact information is Chris Lange, or home phone 520-792-1303. Space will be limited to 20 participants.
