Presentation: Who Are the Sobaipuri O’odham?: The Sobaipuri Legacy at the San Xavier/Wa:k Community
December 9, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$2 – $13
Much has been learned about the Sobaipuri-O’odham over the last couple of decades and that history differs from commonly held assumptions. Presenters Dr. Deni Seymour, Elder Tony Burrell and Cultural Specialist David Tenario of Wa:k present research that provides new perspectives on where and how they lived, and their relationship to the Hohokam. Special reference will be made to the Sobaipuri of San Xavier del Bac or Wa:k where descendant populations reside. The video, “Who Are the Sobaipuri O’odham?” will be followed by a dialogue with the audience. The talk highlights how the influences of politics and economic interests impact our understanding of the O’odham. This program is sponsored by Arizona Humanities and Old Pueblo Archaeology Center. Included with park admission, $5 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free. Please call 520-398-2252 for reservations.
