New Exhibit Opening at S’eḏav Va’aki Museum<div class="ExternalClass117F9AF493234BECB164A547FB54B235"><html> <p> <em>​What's In Our Name?</em> celebrates the Museum's name change from Pueblo Grande to S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki, a name chosen by our tribal partners, the O'Odham, whose ancestors previously inhabited the site. Names have power, both emotionally and spiritually through oral history. The City of Phoenix is continuing on its journey of healing with this renaming. </p> <p>The exhibit will also explore other ways in which the Museum has grown through an updated mission statement, new interpretation signs, programm​ing, and ultimately, an entirely new interpretation plan.</p> <p> <em>What's In Our Name? </em>will be on display at S'eḏav Va'aki Museum from November 7, 2023 through June 2024.</p> <p>S'eḏav Va'aki Museum (formerly Pueblo Grande) is a 1,500-year-old archaeological site once inhabited by the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People. Voted a Phoenix Point of Pride and listed as a National Historic Landmark, the Museum offers two accessible interpretive trails on the prehistoric site. Visitors view a platform mound, ballcourt and irrigation canals. Indoor exhibits feature artifacts from the site and hands-on activities. The Museum provides preservation, education, and collaborative interpretation of the cultural history of the Phoenix area and is managed by the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department.</p> <p style="text-align:left;">Throughout the year, S'eḏav Va'aki Museum offers programs for visitors of all ages.
