The first lecture will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at 12:30 p.m. in the K-Room of Phillips Dining Hall. Dr. Fred Heifner, Professor of Anthropology, Philosophy and Religion, will serve as the featured speaker. Heifner's presentation will focus on Pueblo Culture, as one of his areas of expertise involves the people of the American southwest who built stone and adobe houses between about 1300 and 1600 A.D. Each summer, Dr. Heifner holds an on-site course in New Mexico focusing on Pueblo Indian Culture.
