Chip Wills, archaeologist and UNM professor of anthropology is currently engaged in research on this famous and enigmatic prehistoric site. In this interview he gives an overview of Chaco Canyon and details what they have found about water use, the roads or race courses and what they hope to find in the future.

Patty Crown, archaeologist and UNM professor of anthropology has extensively researched ceramics throughout the Southwest. She was the first to reveal the pupose of unusual cylindrical vessels found at Chaco Canyon by discovering that they contained chocolate. She explains the importance of pottery to archaelogists and the story it tells of the people who used it.

Keith Hunley & Heather Edgar, both biological anthropologists in the UNM Department of Anthropology, speak to the current popular and scientific interest in DNA testing as well as their own research in this area. They explain how little "race" means from a biological standpoint.

Laura Gomez, professor of American Studies and Law at UNM, and author of Manifest Destinies, (NYU Press 2007) examines the legal construction of the Mexican “race” during the NM Territorial period.

Antonio José Martínez

Vicente Martínez, community scholar and descendent of Padre Martínez, who conducts research on this important and controversial historical figure in Taos and NM history.

Chicana Writers & Claravidentes 29:50

Tey Diana Rebolledo, professor of modern languages at UNM and well-known literary critic of Chicana and Latina literature.

The mission of the Alfonso Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies is to create opportunities for diverse, collaborative, community-inspired cultural programs in the humanities and public anthropology, including research, teaching, museum collection and exhibition, and intellectual dialogue on critical issues of contemporary and historical importance in human culture and society. Named for the late Alfonso Ortiz, a University of New Mexico professor of anthropology for twenty-three years, the Center builds on his work to eliminate barriers between the institutional communities of the university and the communities of the world at large.

What is Public Anthropology?

It is anthropological work that seeks to address larger social concerns beyond the boundaries of the discipline and the academy. It necessarily involves community engagement and communication with non-academic as well as academic audiences, and the promotion of public conversation about broad social issues. It may involve community-based, collaborative, and participatory approaches in any or all phases of research, from problem definition and design to the dissemination of findings. It seeks to fuse theory with practice, and to achieve social value for specific communities of study and/or the wider public.

This radio series is a collaboration between Sylvia Rodríguez, Director of Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies at UNM and Cultural Energy in Taos. Robin Collier recorded & mixed the segments. Theme music from Ku'u Kika Kahiko (My Old Guitar) by Hawaiian Slack Guitar Master Ozzie Kotani.
