Join us for “The Relics and Remains of the Ancient Paquiméans” with speaker Dr. Gordon F.M. Rakita.

As Benjamin Franklin noted, nothing is certain but death and taxes. Every society must develop methods for dealing with death. Dr. Gordon Rakita, University of North Florida professor, describes how the inhabitants of ancient Paquimé (CE 1200 – 1400) ushered members of their community into the afterlife. Discover what their mortuary rituals tell us about Paquiméan culture in northern Mexico.
