Dr. Deni Seymour

Our speaker, Arizona Pathfinders

For nearly 30 years she has studied the ancestral Apache, Sobaipuri-O’odham, and lesser-known mobile groups (Jano, Jocome, Manso, Suma, and Jumano) who were present at the same time. She has excavated two Spanish-period presidios (Santa Cruz de Terrenate and Tubac), numerous Kino-period mission sites, and several indigenous sites.

Dr. Seymour works with indigenous groups in reconnecting with their heritage and is rewriting the history of the pre-Spanish and colonial period southern Southwest. She has published extensively on these groups and these periods, with more than 100 publications in refereed journals, edited volumes, and popular venues and has served as guest editor for journals. She has also authored six scholarly books and has two more underway.

This is a Brown Bag meeting. Pathfinders Board Members will provide coffee and dessert. This meeting is free and open to the public. A special raffle of an item from the excavation will be held.

Enjoy free parking at the Arizona Historical Society parking lot, one block west of the AHS at the corner of Euclid and Second Street. Enter from Second Street. Drive straight in.
