Hear a more complex, and detailed story of the Apache told by Dr. Deni Seymour in her presentation Apache and their Horses on December 5, 2018 at 630 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum. While horses played a central role in the Apachean world, the horse divide is not as pronounced as thought. Horses changed the ancestral Apache lifeway and horses survived and thrived without European horse culture. Horses shaped warfare and intercultural relations, were intertwined with family and inter-band relations, and were integrated into Apachean lives through the use of horse power, and in ceremonies. The horse is maintained in contemporary culture and archaeological traces document the historical role of horses in rock art, bones, landscape use, and artifacts. This event is free and open to the public, made possible by the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. Donations are welcome.
