The aim of the Storytellers Cinema is to present the science of archaeology and Indigenous history to the general public through films made by professional and avocational archaeologists and Indigenous people, assuring the promotion and the spreading of these films. The Cinema offers a broad range and varied program featuring films of differing lengths focusing on different periods and themes, but all with one thing in common: to discover and preserve our shared heritage.

Thursday, November 17th

Join guide Richard McGaugh for a visit to two of his favorite places, Honanki and Palatki. They are two of the largest cliff dwellings in the Red Rock country and occupied between 1150 – 1350 CE by the Southern Sinagua.

The Ancestral Puebloan People called the Sinagua enjoyed the beauty of the red rocks just as we do today. They were first investigated and described by Dr. Jesse Walter Fewkes, turn-of-the century archaeologist for the Smithsonian Institution. 

We will meet at Honanki at 9:30am.

Free for VVAC members, RSVP required
