Amerind Museum Free Zoom Lecture: Overview of Mimbres Archaeology


May 9 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Amerind Museum Presents

Free Online Lecture via Zoom: An Overview of Mimbres Archaeology: Beautiful Pottery, Ordinary Architecture, and Scarlet Macaws in Southwestern New Mexico with Patricia Gilman, PhD, SoA Associate Visiting Scholar

Saturday, May 9, 2020, 1:00 pm-2:00 pm

In this talk, Patricia Gilman will discuss a Native American culture of 1000 years ago and their famous pottery paintings of people and animals. The people who lived in the Mimbres region of southwestern New Mexico painted their ceramic bowls with black designs on a white background, and those designs included realistic scenes of people, animals, and sometimes combinations of the two. Dr. Gilman will consider what these scenes might mean, drawing on the Hero Twins origin saga common in Mesoamerica, and she will touch upon the role of scarlet macaws, from the rain forests of Mexico, in Mimbres ritual and religion.

This online program is free, but space is limited.
