A two-day tour of Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico, and other nearby sites is being planned for Friday and Saturday, October 13 and 14, 2017. On Friday, October 13, we will visit the Village of the Great Kivas (a Chacoan outlier), where you can view some very nice pictographs and petroglyphs. Heading back to Zuni pueblo, in the afternoon we will take a tour of the Middle Village, the historic original Pueblo which is the center of the Zuni world and Culture. This will be followed by a traditional Zuni meal. On Saturday, October 14, we will visit the pueblo of Hawikku, an archaeological site and place of the first European contact. We then will return to Zuni Pueblo for lunch on your own. Also on this day, you will have the opportunity to join in the Zuni Pueblo Fall Festival, which will have traditional crafts, food and dancing. If you are interested, you can visit the Ashiwi Awan Museum and Heritage Center on your own to learn more about the Zuni. The cost of the tours, led by Zuni guides, and the traditional Zuni dinner will be $75.00, a discount on their usual fees. Transportation and lodging is on your own. This trip is limited to 20 people, and you must be an AAHS member in good standing to participate. Once you have signed up, further details for payment, lodging, etc. will be forthcoming. Contact person for this event is Chris Lange.
