The Other American Revolution: Archaeology and the Pueblo Revolt of 1680

Why is one of the most successful indigenous rebellions in the Americas nearly unknown? In 1680 the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico rose up against their European colonizers. For the next twelve years the Pueblos lived free from Spanish oppression, a period that proved crucial in the formation of the modern American Southwest.

The Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Harvard University presents the free lecture "The Other American Revolution: Archaeology and the Pueblo Revolt of 1680" on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at the Geological Lecture Hall (24 Oxford St., Cambridge) at 6:00 PM. A reception will follow at the Peabody Museum (11 Divinity Avenue).

Why didn’t we all learn about the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 in history class? And why does this watershed event still languish in relative obscurity today? Matthew J. Liebmann will show how today’s archaeology is changing views of this historic rebellion.
