Dr. Elisabeth Stone, Women’s Lives in the Past: What can we learn from archaeology? NOON–1PM - Museum of Indian Arts and Culture - Kathryn O’Keeffe Theater

Women and children have always been vital, visible parts of our communities, but you might not know that when looking at archaeological studies and reconstructions. Join us for a conversation about ways that archaeology and history can take a closer look at women’s lives in the past using feminist approaches to research, and how this knowledge can inform our lives today. Dr. Elisabeth Stone is the new Regional Manager for the Coronado Historic Site (CHS) and Jemez Historic Site (JHS). She is an accomplished archaeologist with an emphasis on equity, community, and collaboration. Her area of focus is cultural heritage, particularly Indigenous history, archeology, and contemporary life.

Mary Weahkee, Comanche/Santa Clara Pueblo, attended California State University, Fullerton and later taught PE classes in local schools. It was in 1992 that her interest in archeology began, she says “I discovered that I had a natural curiosity about where my people came from.” In 2006 she was hired to help excavate the Santa Fe Convention Center and joined the Office of Archeological Studies, (OAS). She’s been with the OAS for 16 years and is known as “the yucca lady.” She teaches the traditional uses of this versatile plant. She wants to preserve cultural knowledge as well as revive forgotten art forms.
