Settlers and Consumers: Characterization of Tewa Pueblo Pottery from Late Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Sites

February 13, 2018


Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 12:00 noon, free!

C. Dean Wilson (former Director of the OAS' Ceramics laboratory and current OAS Research Associate) presents a lecture on the economic interaction between Tewa groups near Santa Fe and their non-Indian neighbors, beginning from the Spanish Colonial period and ending with Anglo-American residents of the northern Rio Grande region around the turn of the twentieth century.

Much of what is known about pottery produced by the Tewa and other Pueblo groups during the Late Colonial to Early Territorial periods is based on whole painted vessels found in museums and private collections. Recent studies of archaeological sherd assemblages from Northern Rio Grande Hispanic and Anglo sites occupied during this time span have provided the opportunity to characterize a broader range of pottery produced by Pueblo potters for use in non-Native households. These collections also document the nature and extent of interaction, influence, and trade between these groups.

The Brown Bag talk will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
