Next Meeting –
On August 12th,
at 7:00 p.m. MDT, Richard Jenkinson will use Zoom to present "Rock Art
of Dinetah: Stories of Heroes and Healing."
Richard Jenkinson is a retired high
school English teacher. For the first
fourteen years of his career he taught
on the Navajo reservation in Kayenta,
Arizona. Navajo literature was a part of
the curriculum each year. The Navajo
rock art of Dinetah, the area including
Largo and Gobernador canyons, has many
connections to traditional Navajo
stories. This presentation will examine
the rock art and the stories and
ceremonies related to it.

The Next 40 Years! – Volunteering for
Volunteers have made SJBAS a great
organization for over 40 years and your
Board is planning for the future. We are
actively seeking members to help with a
variety of volunteer opportunities.
Volunteering can be as simple as
bringing cookies to a pre-meeting
social, leading a field trip, or even
becoming a Board member. There are many
ways to get involved.
We have developed a specific list of Volunteer Opportunities
in a questionnaire format to solicit
feedback from members who may be
interested in volunteering in some
capacity. Please follow this link to the
Volunteer Opportunities List. We encourage members to print the list, complete the
contact information, and indicate areas
of interest. Completed forms may be
scanned and emailed to Susan Hicks,
email@example.com, mailed to Susan at: SJBAS, Attn: Susan
Hicks, P.O. Box
3153, Durango, CO 81302,
or brought to our next meeting.
