Poster: Native American Day 2017

Honor Native American Heritage Month in November and mark your calendar: Saturday, November 18, 2017 for Native American Day at Nevada’s Lost City Museum. The event features Native American dancers, food and demonstrations.

There will be a variety of artists and craftspeople displaying and selling their creations and hopefully some will demonstrate. Of course there will also be delicious Navajo tacos and fry bread for sale.

The fun is behind the museum near the pueblos. It is all included with the admission to the museum. More information will be shared on the Lost City Museum website and Facebook.

History
In 1935 the Lost City Museum was built by the National Park Service to exhibit artifacts that were being excavated from Pueblo Grande de Nevada. Ancestral Puebloan sites were threatened by the waters of Lake Mead as it backed up behind the newly built Hoover Dam. Eventually, when the lake was filled to capacity, about five miles of sites had been inundated or undercut by the water. The Civilian Conservation Corps assisted in the excavation of the sites and the construction of the museum building. The building was constructed of sun-dried adobe brick in a pueblo-revival style. On display are an excavated pit house and reconstructed Puebloan houses.

Programs include ongoing archaeological research on the remaining Lost City sites, school tours, changing exhibits, and archival library and collections research capabilities. Special public programs are held throughout the year.
