August 4 - $5 First Friday Focus on The Great American Eclipse
Museum of Natural History and Science
5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

(Albuquerque, NM) --- On August 4, get ready for The Great American Eclipse at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (NMMNHS) during $5 First Friday. On Monday, August 21, an eclipse of the sun can be seen across the entire United States. For most of the country, including New Mexico, the eclipse will be partial. This means only part of the sun’s surface will be blocked by the moon and there will be no point during which it will be safe to look at the sun without proper eye protection. The only place where it will be safe to view the sun directly will be a relatively narrow path from Oregon to South Carolina, and then only for a little over two minutes while the sun is totally eclipsed.

Chupadero Black-on-White: Communities of Practice, Kinship, and the Chacoan Zeitgest

The transmission of knowledge, and how it implicates the structure of a society and individual agency, has been a focus of recent social science research. In archaeology, the use of practice theory, to reconstruct the communities of practice which created the material culture of the prehistoric societies being studied, has become a means of investigating social identity.

Chupadero Black-on-white, produced in central and southeast New Mexico, was possibly the longest lived of all the Black-on-white wares, manufactured from AD 1050/1100 to 1550 and extensively exchanged. Yet for all of its longevity and ubiquity in the Southwest, the design style, based on rim morphology and painted decoration remain constant. In this research, I conduct an attribute analysis of the decorative design and technological style of Chupadero in order to assess to what degree, if any, change in style occurs. I explore the areal dimensions of this long term production and the long distance exchange of Chupadero Black-on-white. I then discuss the implications for the communities of practice and the agency of the people who produced Chupadero starting in the late Pueblo II period. Finally, I discuss the implications of the kinship-mode of production of this ware in the context of exchange in the greater Southwest.

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Gallery talk by John Brandi

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

John Brandi shares the history of his friendship with Japanese poet Nanao Sakaki. Good friends with Gary Snyder and Allen Ginsberg, Sakaki was encouraged by them to travel to the US, and in 1971 he was drawn to northern New Mexico where he ended up living in a school bus below Taos Mountain. Sakaki’s poetry is marked by humor and appreciation for a simple lifestyle, the embodiment of unconventional wisdom and spirited non-conformism. Brandi, founder of Tooth of Time Books, published Sakaki’s first major collection poetry, "Real Play" and will speak about Sakaki’s poetry and role as a countercultural literary icon. 

Free with admission.

Variation in Earth’s Magnetic Field Strength and Direction As Seen in the American Southwest
Office of Archaeological Studies
Brown Bag Talk

Over the past six decades, a number of scientists have devoted their careers to collecting and measuring the magnetic properties of archaeological burned sediments, such as hearths, bricks, kilns, and pottery. The resulting data show that the Earth’s magnetic field has varied significantly over the last 2000 years. This rich archaeomagnetic database is now being integrated into global models of the Earth’s field, strengthening both the geophysical models and the archaeologists’ ability to use geomagnetic variation as a dating technique.

To further glean the impact of this era, ten residents from each of the five New Mexico communities listed below will be selected to participate in a workshop to craft and present personal stories for their community.

The program is designed to be in collaboration with local libraries, museums, universities, community groups, and radio broadcasters. Workshops will start with a Friday evening presentation followed by a two-day session on Saturday and Sunday. The outgrowth will be community events featuring the stories, local music, a potluck, either a live or produced radio broadcast and will have an on-line presence.

Counterculture: the Rise of Permaculture

Gallery talk with Roxanne Swentzell

Roxanne Swentzell is a member of the Naranjo family from the Santa Clara Pueblo of northern New Mexico. An internationally celebrated clay artist, Swentzell is also a pioneer in the permaculture movement intent on training younger Native Americans in Santa Clara and beyond to build hornos (adobe ovens), preserve seeds, select and cook native foods, and preserve the cultural attitudes that have sustained her people for millennia. She has been an activist on behalf of native cultural justice and is in the vanguard of today’s counterculture movement.

Gallery talk with Enrique Lamadrid

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Enrique R. Lamadrid is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Spanish at the University of New Mexico.
