On Saturday March 10, 2012 the Pueblo Grande Museum and through the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary will host the 2nd Annual Ancient Technology Day event. Doors open at 10am and close at 3pm. The day’s event will include an array of fun including: tossing the atlatl (spear), watching artists’ demonstrations in pottery making, basket weaving, rock art, flint-napping and more! Attendees will also enjoy making their own Native American crafts, snacking on Indian fry bread, and agave roast made in the traditional way.
New this year! Pueblo Grande Museum’s Ancient Technology Day will also be featured as part of the at the Arizona Sci-tech Festival. Thanks to a grant in part by Phoenix Suns Charities, the event will feature some new elements such as joining the artist in residence group, Radio Healer, as they perform traditional songs using instruments made from modern technology. The museum will also be hosting a workshop in which guests can turn dated technology (such as a Wii remote) into a “modern” instrument. Or join us at the traditional kitchen constructed and hosted by the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community for food demonstrations. Entertainment will also include live music and dance and performances throughout the day.
This is a free event and open to the public. Museum admission will also be free on Saturday, March 10. For more information go to http://www.PuebloGrande.com or find us on http://www.facebook.com/events/254183464663773/.
