Home: Native Peoples in the Southwest

Come meet the peoples who have lived and thrived in the Southwest from Prehistoric to Current times. The three-part course will include an exciting overview of the land, culture, art and history of both the ancient peoples of the Southwest and the federally recognized tribes and pueblos who call Arizona and New Mexico home today.

Each of the three sessions will conclude with a 30- to 40-minute tour of the Heard Museum exhibits and sculpture. Whether you have lived in the desert for years or are new to the Southwest, don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding and appreciation of this special place we all call Home.
