You are Invited! 8th Annual Winter Party and Fundraiser
January 23, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm MST
Join us for the AAHS Winter Party and Fundraiser through Zoom Webinar to be with family, friends, colleagues and others interested in the archaeology, history and cultures of the Southwest for a celebration of who we are.
The committee has added three fun spontaneous debates for your education and entertainment that will occur during the event. Participate as debate judges with donation votes to help us raise funds to support AAHS Research and Travel Grants!
Ed Kabotie, musician, artist, and storyteller from the Hopi village of Shungopavi and the Tewa village of Khapo-Owingeh has graciously agreed to share his music with us during the event. Through music, art, and storytelling, Ed shares the courageous stories of the people and lands of Indigenous America. AAHS is honored that Ed has agreed to provide stories and music for us during the party. Ed’s performance enlightens and teaches while entertaining and is often referred to “edu-tainment”.
