Pueblo Grande Museum will be hosting a lecture series for three Fridays in
February free and open to the public. 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-20 th 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. |

The significance of, and details about, the Mountain Spirit Dancers. And how they are also known as Crown Dancers. The significance of, and other names for, White Changing Woman. What happens during the four-day ceremony? How preparations are made for the Ceremony and why the sponsors and the girl's attendant are so crucial to its success. Symbolism of ritual items that will be seen in the photographs. How the ceremony is important not only to help the girl step into womanhood, but also how it is a healing and bonding ceremony for the whole community. How the government tried to destroy Native cultures by prohibiting ceremonies like this one and how the laws were finally changed. The reasons why all Apache puberty ceremonies are not exactly like this one, and what some of the others are like.
