From Mesa Verde to Santa Fe: Continuity and Change in the Pueblo World examines continuity and change over 1,000 years of Pueblo Indian history from the perspectives of two cultures (Euroamerican and Pueblo) and three academic disciplines (archaeology, ethnohistory, and oral history). The program begins in the late 13th century A.D., with the depopulation of the Mesa Verde region, the ancestral homeland of many present-day Pueblo peoples whose communities are now located in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. Scholars will spend time at Mesa Verde National Park and in historic Pueblo and Spanish colonial communities in northern New Mexico. Readings and meetings will include discussions of historical and anthropological contexts and concepts in relation to the source texts and field experiences as well as theoretical approaches to interpretation. The institute will also provide time and space to help teachers create assignments that will guide students in their understanding of Pueblo Indian history and culture in the Southwest.
