We are pleased to announce that Patricia A. Gilman and Steven A. LeBlanc are 2016 subvention award recipients for their upcoming volume “Mimbres Life and Society at the Mattocks Site in the Mimbres Valley of Southwestern New Mexico” (University of Arizona Press). The purpose of this program is to provide money in support of the publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. We are also pleased to announce that one of the publications which received a 2015 subvention award is now available. “Discovering Paquime”, edited by Paul E. Minnis and Michael E. Whalen ($12.95) is designed for the general reader and available from Amazon.
The Tumamoc Hill Rock Art Recording Project carried out by AAHS under the leadership of Peter Boyle and Gayle Hartmann has just received an Historic Preservations Award from the Tucson-Pima County Historical Commission. The award citation reads:
“Volunteers undertaking this project documented and mapped the rock art, thus providing a baseline for land managers to evaluate impacts, and prepared a successful National Register of Historic Places nomination for the archaeological component of Tumamoc Hill, which was listed at the national level of significance.”
Congratulations to the AAHS members who put in many hours on this project. Copies of the recent Arizona State Museum Anthropological Paper documenting this work are available through the AAHS website store.
December 16th Regular Meeting Turns Wildly Irregular
We’re starting an hour earlier than usual (6:30)
At a different place (ASM)
The Remarkable Evening begins with a Lecture by Stephen H. Lekson, “Mimbres: Its Causes and Consequences”
Followed by a Gangbuster of a Holiday Party and an Extraordinary Silent Auction
AAHS Members will be treated to some of the best our Society has to offer. We’re celebrating the Holidays, an excellent speaker and a new logo. Suzanne Crawford has gathered a list of outstanding items for the auction to benefit the Research and Scholarship Fund. Among the items to bid on are items from Petroglyphs Gallery, Rustica, Bookman’s, Barrio Brewery and local restaurants. We have an Acoma Pot by Melissa Antonio from Dwight Riggs’ collection and a replica Clovis Point as well as a type set of Early Agricultural Period projectile points by Allen Denoyer. Come. Indulge yourself with an extraordinary object either for yourself or as a special holiday gift for the ones you love and support the Research and Scholarship Fund at the same time.
We’re buying the drinks. We’re giving out door prizes. Please bring a dessert or snack to share. Donna Yoder is coordinating food for the event. Let her know what you will bring.
Let’s have a Party!
