Join experimental archaeologist, Zack Curcija, for a shell disc bead manufacturing demonstration on the back patio at Pueblo Grande Museum. This interpretive demonstration will reveal how prehistoric southwestern craftspeople, specifically the Hohokam, created millions of delicate and uniform beads with stone tool technology. Discover the archaeology of shell disc beads: species identification, source, manufacturing locations, and processes.

Curcjia will also explain the toolkits and micro-drill technology used by the Hohokam. The informal presentation allows everyone to ask questions and get an up close demonstration of marine shell disc bead production using the replicated tools and techniques employed by Hohokam artists.

Included with paid museum admission.
