Mesa Verde National Park and Pueblo Indian History

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers to study Pueblo history and culture through the archaeology of Mesa Verde.

Mesa Verde National Park and Pueblo Indian History is a one-week residence-based workshop that will be offered twice during the summer of 2020, each time for 36 K–12 educators. The Workshop focuses on three fundamental questions: 1) How do we come to know and appreciate the time depth, people, and activities that comprise the past and shaped our contemporary world? 2) Who creates America’s history and culture? 3) How do contemporary Pueblo people (and all Americans not of European descent) balance their cultural identity and continuity with Euro American ideals of assimilation and the melting pot? These questions touch the lives of all Americans today, and the Workshop offers historic and multicultural perspectives using Mesa Verde National Park and the surrounding Mesa Verde Region—home to humans for over 10,000 years and containing some of the world’s greatest archaeological treasures.
