THATCHER, AZ—Eskimos, Aleuts, and Indians are the terms used by Alaskans to identify their aboriginal populations and it’s the title of the next topic in the EAC Discovery Park Campus’ comprehensive series of free Southwest anthropology slide show lectures entitled Discover Anthropology. Eskimos, Aleuts, and Indians is scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m., on September 22, in the Discovery Park Campus–Jupiter Room. The lecture is free to the public.

Harry Swanson, Dean of EAC’s new campus in Safford, will present an interesting overview of arctic and sub-arctic cultures including information on migration routes, modes of transportation, distinctive clothing, foods, rituals, and some anecdotal tales about his 23 years living among these very adaptive peoples. Come join us as your new Discovery Park Campus highlights the many unique ways cultures have found to adapt to their environments.

The entire community is invited to attend the continuation of this comprehensive culture lecture series. For more information about the lecture series or about Discovery Park Campus, call 428-6260.
