Teachers Visit Pueblo Grande to Learn About Water in the Deserthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/pueblo-grande-museum/927Pueblo Grande Museum2/10/2020 9:56:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/927/Newsroom_PGM_004.jpgTeachers Visit Pueblo Grande to Learn About Water in the Desert<div class="ExternalClass600EEF41A4A04E82BA7DC843742172E4"><html> <p>​Two teachers from Brophy College Preparatory visited the museum and interviewed our Museum Director Nicole Armstrong-Best. Brophy has a 2 week summit every year that does a deep dive on a specific topic and how it impacts our dignity as humans. The subject of this year is water; therefore, four teachers are putting together a 10-15-minute documentary in hopes of giving their students a deeper understanding of where their water comes from and push them to think about the future of water in Arizona. </p> <p>The four teachers rode their bikes from Roosevelt Dam back to Brophy for 3 days last month following rivers and canals including the canal right behind Pueblo Grande. To get a deeper understanding of the Salt River Valley and the extensive canals the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People built in Phoenix, they interviewed the Director and inquired about Pueblo Grande and the Salt River Valley. With this interview and documentary, they hope to create an understanding of where water comes from and who was here before and made it possible for us to have water now and for Phoenix to thrive.<br></p> <p><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/arts-culture-history/pueblo-grandeNewspueblo-grande-museumPGM

These lunch-time lectures will explore Hohokam marine shell jewelry, Akimel O'Odham and Pee Posh bow and arrow technology, and patterns of early Phoenix irrigation revealed via aerial photography and mapping. These lectures will begin on February 7th and will go on until February 21st. The lectures are free and open to the public, sponsored in part by the Phoenix Chapter of the Arizona Archaeology Society and the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. </span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> <strong>February 7, 2020 </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong>Hohokam Marine Shell Jewelry Acquisition, Production, and Use at Pueblo Grande </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong> Speaker: Andrea Gregory </strong> </span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> This lecture will discuss marine shell jewelry recovered from investigations at Pueblo Grande, including shell within Pueblo Grande Museum's collections from early excavations of the site and materials from more recent projects associated with construction of the SR 143 and Light Rail projects. Andrea Gregory has over 20 years of experience in archaeology, including 18 years supervisory experience at Archaeological Consulting Services (ASC) and serves as Director of Cultural Resources and lead for ACS' Paleoenvironmental Studies (PES) and Historical Services.</span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> <strong>February 14, 2020 </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong> Akimel O'Odham and Pee Posh Bow and Arrow Technology : Modern Experimental Testing of Ancient Designs </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong> Speaker: Chris Loendorf </strong> </span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> This presentation summarizes the results of a research program that tested the effect of bow design on projectile performance. Very little empirical data are available regarding the effects of variation in bow design on projectile performance, and this study compares recurve bows to less complex self-bow designs. In order to systematize the results, bows of different designs and a range of weights are analyzed using a bench rest rig and manufactured arrows. Chris Loendorf is a Senior Project Manager for the Gila River Indian Community Cultural Resource Management Program with over 30 years of experience and has worked on a wide variety of archaeological projects from the Southwest to the Northern Plains. </span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> <strong>February 21, 2020 </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong> The Ghost Canals of Phoenix – Using Aerial Photography and Mapping Data to Identify the Persistent Patterns of Early Phoenix Irrigation </strong></span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><strong> Speaker: Dan Garcia </strong> </span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> The locations of ancient and historical structures can persist through time and be preserved in modern street layouts and property lines. The Salt River Valley and Maricopa Canals were the first irrigation canals excavated in the Valley since ancient times and are significant in the development of what would become modern Phoenix. The canals were abandoned, infilled, and mostly forgotten by the mid-20th Century, but their precise locations across the city can still be found using Google Earth, geographic information technology, publicly available data, and a keen eye. This presentation will be led by Dan Garcia, who is Salt River Project's Senior Cultural Resource Manager.</span><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><br style="font-size:14.66px;"><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> ​​​​</span><span style="font-size:14.66px;"><br></span><p><span style="font-size:14.66px;"> </span></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/arts-culture-history/pueblo-grandeNewspueblo-grande-museumPGM
