The San Tan Chapter of the Az Archaeological Society usually meets in the San Tan Historical Society Museum, but it is closed until January 2020 for floor renovations.
The San Tan chapter will meet at the Queen Creek Library for their November 13th meeting, in the Edward Abbey Room/Conf 2. New meeting times are 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Please come join us for a fun, interesting evening.
Our meetings are free and open to the public. For our November meeting we have scheduled a PBS movie called: Native America, and we will show Episode 1: From Caves to Cosmos.
We will show this first episode which focuses on the deep roots of Native America. Who is America’s First Peoples and how did they create their unique world? Answers emerge from Hopi Elders on pilgrimage at sacred Chaco Canyon in the New Mexico desert, scientists examining ancient cave painting in the Amazon jungle, Chumash boat builders exploring their tribe’s ancient migration legacy off California’s coast, and an archaeologist digging deep below a towering pyramid near Mexico City.”
