Pueblo Book Club: Last Hunters, First Farmers: New Perspectives on the Prehistoric Transition to Agriculture (SAR Series)
02:00 pm - 04:00 pm MDT
Pueblos are agrarian societies. This month’s reading explores the science-based evidence of the transition from hunter gather societies to the predecessors of Pueblo civilizations.
The history of humankind in the Western Hemisphere spans eons. Yet, the transition from hunter-gathers to builders of impressive dwellings and creation of agrarian societies in the Eastern Hemisphere is what is promoted. The narrative that is missing, is the evidence of skill-sets and problem-solving, that contributed to the establishment of sophisticated civilizations in the Western Hemisphere, pre-Contact. ‘Last Hunters, First Farmers’ is a collective case study presenting that ignored paradigm, acknowledging evidence of the New World’s diverse complex social structures.
