Special Programs:

Traditional Technologies Program

Established in 2018, the AAHS Traditional Technologies Program offers travel support for Native American and Hispano artists and scholars and non-Native students and scholars who practice or study Southwestern traditional arts and technologies. The first ten years of this program are sponsored by a donation from a benefactor. In the long term, the Society will raise money to enable its continuation.

Roots of Southwestern Archaeology

AAHS has undertaken several projects to retain both the history of southwestern archaeology as reflected in the generations following the well-documented “founding fathers” and the history of AAHS itself. Our goal is to leave a legacy for upcoming and future generations.
