Bridging Cultures: Diversity and Unity in the Pueblo World

A three-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the history and culture of the Pueblo Indians.

Bridging Cultures is a 3-week institute for 25 school teachers that will be conducted by the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center from July 17 to August 6, 2011. The institute offers an immersive experience in the American Southwest that will help teachers advance their understanding of the critically important humanities concepts, culture and diversity. The history of the Pueblo Indians (one of the continent's most enduring cultural groups) provides the context for this study. The interdisciplinary field of anthropology offers the primary lens through which participants will examine the Pueblo world. Authentic research experiences give participants opportunities to learn first-hand how anthropologists and Pueblo scholars reconstruct Pueblo history and conceptualize the boundaries of Pueblo identity and culture. Visits to modern Pueblo communities present a window into how Pueblo culture formed, how it has endured, and how it is expressed in diverse communities today.
