Puerto Rican Archaeology
From Amanda Guzman
We start off our speaker series with Puerto Rican archaeologist and National Museum of the American Indian curator, Antonio Curet with his talk entitled, "Life, Death and Remembering at the Center of the Cosmos".
This week, the class turned to thinking about the establishment of the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture in 1955 as a seminal moment in defining traditional visions of the island's cultural identity particularly in terms of the pioneering contributions of anthropologist, Ricardo Alegría and more specifically, in how the island's indigeneity has been historically narrated.
