Dr. Pagán returns with another presentation, “Adaptive Native America: How the Horse Altered Native American Life”. Since the time that the Spanish first set foot on American shores, the horse was not an unknown creature for many native people of the Americas. But learning to live with them brought a revolution in economy, warfare, and even in the power dynamics between native nations. This presentation will explore some of the ways in which the introduction of the horse profoundly changed life for many native communities of the American West.
Join us Thursday, February 15 at 10:30 a.m. at now at the Saguaro Theater. Doors open at 10 a.m.
$10 admission, free for members.
