Moquis and Kastilam: The Hopi History Project
Dr. Thomas E. Sheridan and Dr. T.J. Ferguson, both from the University of Arizona, will be presenting information on the Moquis and Kastilam: The Hopi History Project. This project, which has been ongoing for the past seven years, has researched un-transcribed Spanish documents about their presence among the Hopi. Several Hopi interviews will be played as well and there will be time for interaction and viewpoints. This is a collaborative effort between the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office and the University of Arizona, Arizona State Museum. The search for Spanish archival documents have been conducted at the Mexico National Archives, Archives in various Museums in Spain and in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Come hear both scholars as they give an update on the many interesting research findings.

Looking forward to hearing details of this on Beyond The Mesas or even an edited podcast would be great.
Phil, I think that it would be great if a podcast were available for me to post on Beyond the Mesas. I’ll check with the HCPO and see if they are planning on recording the session. I went to this presentation (or something very similar) at the Native American and Indigenous Studies conference in Tucson and I’ve been meaning to blog about it.
