The Box-S Ruin: A Tale of Healing Decades of Site Destruction at an Ancestral Zuni Pueblo by James B. Walker, Southwest Regional Director and Vice President of The Archaeological Conservancy
Located adjacent to the Zuni Reservation in Western New Mexico, this 1100 room masonry pueblo was acquired by The Archaeological Conservancy for permanent preservation in 1999. Dating from AD 1260-1285, the pueblo is considered by the Zuni to be part of their ancestral homeland. The lecture will focus on a unique collaborative effort by the Conservancy and the people from Zuni Pueblo to repair the extensive looting damage at the site.
