Subject: Turkey Feather Blanket Production Demonstration & Indigenous Symbolism in Ceramic Iconography
My interest in archaeology began in 1992 when working with Nambe Pueblo Tours as a tour guide during the summers. I discovered that I had a natural curiosity about where my people came from. In March 2006 Steve Lentz hired me to help excavate the Civic Center in Santa Fe. Since then it has been just a pleasure working and learning archaeology with OAS's knowledgable staff. I've also enjoyed giving yucca-fiber production demonstrations with Eric Blinman and Chuck Hannaford as part of the OAS education outreach program, and working with Steve Post as an assistant guide during the Chiles & Sherds event. Recently I had the opportunity to go out on mine surveys with Yvonne Oakes and Dorthy Zamora in Raton. I am grateful for all the experiences I have had and new friends I have made here at OAS.
