From Chaco to Mesa Verde: Ancestral Pueblo Migrations and Identity Formation in the American Southwest

A two-week, residential institute for 25 K-12 teachers to examine the twelfth-century Pueblo migration through interdisciplinary perspectives.

From Chaco to Mesa Verde: Ancestral Pueblo Migrations and Identity Formation in the American Southwest, a Level II, two-week summer Institute for 25 K-12 teachers, will be conducted by the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center from July 17th – 30th, 2022. This newly proposed Institute highlights the factors leading up to, and following, the migrations of ancestral Pueblo people from their homelands in Chaco Canyon to the Mesa Verde region during the 12th century A.D. Utilizing a multi-vocal approach of both Western scientific and Native traditional knowledge, the goal of this Institute is to investigate human migrations as broad, socially-complex processes in order to further educate teachers, and subsequently students, on a topic that has been, and will always remain, relevant to humans in every society throughout the world in the past, present, and future.
