Join Nicole Armstrong-Best, Pueblo Grande Museum Director and MoW for a walk through time at a site where the Huhugam (ancestral Sonoran Desert peoples) have lived and thrived for over a thousand years.  This silent, contemplative walk will start on the busy sidewalk in front of the museum and enter into a place that is a “pocket of preservation in a landscape of urbanization.”  We will acknowledge the ingenuity of the Huhugam and their impact on the development of Phoenix.  We will pay homage to this sacred ancestral place and the current tribal communities of the O’Odham that have always called it home.
