Historical Society lectures are free, but registration is required to provide you with the Zoom link. To register, visit www.losalamoshistory.org/lecture and follow the links to our EventBrite page.
Dr. Aguilar will discuss the multi-layered history of his pueblo’s ancestral homelands, which include a majority of the Pajarito Plateau, from the perspectives of his experience as a trained archaeologist and his upbringing as a member of San Ildefonso Pueblo. He is an enrolled member of San Ildefonso Pueblo, New Mexico, and currently serves as the pueblo’s Deputy Tribal Historic Preservation Officer. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania where his research focused on the archaeology of the Pueblo Revolt.
