One of the SJBAS objectives is for members to learn about the archaeology, culture, and early history of the Four Corners region. Presentations at our monthly meetings and PAAC classes presented by History Colorado are a wonderful way to acquire more in-depth knowledge. Our Reading List includes a number of books that cover the archaeology and early history of the Four Corners region. Our monthly newsletter, the Moki Messenger, often includes educational articles. This web page contains links to webinars and various resources on the Internet that offer excellent information and insight.
