Presentation: Spain: Moors and Christians, Olives and Wine Tracing the Cultural and Agricultural Roots of the American Southwest
April 4, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
In the Southwest we use the adjective “Spanish” frequently and loosely. Indeed, many elements of our culture originate in Spain. But the 16th -18th century Christian Spain that colonized the Americas was the sum total of its previous occupants – Arabs, Jews, Visigoths and Romans. Sonya Norman is the Public Programs Coordinator for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Jesús García is the founder of the Kino Heritage Fruit Trees Project as they discuss agricultural practices, Father Kino’s fruit tree legacy, language, religion, architecture and crafts that have crossed the Atlantic and become rooted in the Southwest. $10 fee includes admission to tour the Presidio Park.
