Tony Burrell, David Tenario, and Deni J. Seymour will give a presentation on “S-ap ki:himdag (Good Living) for the Akimel O’odham along the Santa Cruz” at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 2:00 pm. The O’odham who lived along the Santa Cruz River were not Tohono O’odham. Just as today the (San Xavier del) Wa:k O’odham are Akimel O’odham, so were their Sobaípuri ancestors. Come learn what this means with respect to shaping the s-ap ki:himdag (good living) for the Akimel O’odham along the Santa Cruz River and discover how this research team is uncovering the character of southeast Arizona’s River People more generally. This presentation conveys the nature of their research, the kinds of data used to shape their perspectives, and presents the results they are creating and collecting together. They combine traditional knowledge with other forms of evidence to critically assess, evaluate, and validate inferences and conclusions. For reservations contact (520) 398-2252. The $10 fee includes all-day admission to tour the Presidio Park (1 Burruel Street, Tubac, AZ).
