For information, contact me at 520 289-4106. Homolovi Archaeology Day, Saturday, July 27, 1996 (This is an annual event held on the last Saturday of July) Friday the 26th: Heat corn pit & pile in the corn! Saturday: Around 8am: open corn pit. We will give an ear of corn to each visitor for as long as it lasts! 8:30am: Archaeologists from the Arizona State Museum will give a tour of this summer's excavations at Homolovi I. This has been an exciting summer with some fascinating developments concerning the architecture at Homolovi I. Wear comfortable shoes and a hat. It can get hot here (high 90's... don't laugh you Phoenix people!) We have recently been having rain in the afternoon, so that has cooled it a bit. 9am-3pm demonstrations of various traditional activities, such as carving. 10am: Peter Pilles, Coconino National Forest Archaeologist, will give a talk on Jesse Walter Fewkes and his excavations at Homolovi in 1896 (100 year of archaeology at Homolovi!), and his work at Chavez Pass, etc. 11am: Program and demonstration of Native American music and dance by the Pollen Pathway Dancers. This group was developed by a Navajo teacher at Bird Springs to encourage the students to appreciate their heritage. The community of Bird Springs is located next to the park and uses the park road for access to their village. 1:30 pm: Tour of Homolovi I (same as 8:30) Hope you can join us for this day! (Note: we have a campground with hookups,a dump station, showers, and tentpads. $13 with hookups, $8 without hookups for up to two vehicles & 6 people and this includes use of the park the day you come in and the day you leave! For day use only, $3/vehicle/6 people).
