The Amerind Foundation is hosting a free lecture via Zoom with University of Arizona Press author Paul Minnis on May 16. Because of the Amerind’s groundbreaking research, people know Paquimé in northwestern Chihuahua as one of the premier and influential ancient communities in the borderlands. It is hard to ignore its archaeological riches: massive buildings, hundreds of parrot burials, over a ton of shell artifacts, copper, large ball courts, ceremonial mounds, and magnificent polychrome pottery. But these are only a part of Paquimé’s story. We will explore equally important characteristics of this site and its neighbors.

Paul Minnis is the co-author and co-editor of many University of Arizona Press books on Paquimé, including Discovering Paquimé, Ancient Paquimé and the Casas Grandes World, Casas Grandes and Its Hinterlands, and Neighbors of Casas Grandes. A new volume edited by Paul Minnis and Michael Whalen, The Prehispanic Ethnobotany of Paquimé and Its Neighbors, will be published in the fall.
