5:30 to 7:30 PM / New Mexico History Museum

Citizen Min in New Mexico commemorates an event of national significance—the posthumous award of a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Minoru (Min) Yasui, one of the heroes of Japanese American civil rights beginning in the World War II era of internment camps. It also presents a little-known event, a historic encounter between Min and Senator Pete Domenici in Albuquerque in 1984. At 6 pm on Friday, May 6, Min’s daughter, Holly Yasui, offers a special presentation as a Free First Friday Evening event. Museum admission is free to everyone from 5 to 8 pm.

The Role of Settlement Pattern Studies and the Emergence of the Current Archaeological View of Ancient Maya Civilization Office of Archaeological Studies and Friends of Archaeology Brown Bag Lecture:

12 / Office of Archaeological Studies

Current scholarly understandings of Pre-Columbian Maya civilization are quite different from the traditional model of ancient Maya civilization that dominated the field of Maya studies until recently and still dominates public perception of the ancient Maya. In part, this new view is due to both the significant increase in archaeological studies in the Maya area in the past few decades and the decipherment of Maya hieroglyphic texts, which have provided new insights into Maya history. Much of the change also is due to the introduction and rapid spread of settlement pattern studies conducted more than a half a century ago. This Brown Bag talk examines the major impact of the methodology of settlement pattern research on Maya archaeology and looks at new directions in the field.

The Brown Bag talks 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.
