Humanities in the Wild: Parowan Gap

Jul 19, 2022, 7:00 pm

Humanities in the Wild is an exploratory outdoor experience that empowers participants to step into the landscapes that inspired some of the American West’s greatest literature. Join us at Parowan Gap for a short trek led by Hopi Guide Bertram Tsavadawa and Assistant Professor of Geologist Jason Kaiser. Bring sturdy shoes, water, and a shady hat.

Mr. Bertram Tsavadawa is a guide of the Ancient Pathways Tours. He belongs to the corn clan from the village of Old Oraibi, 3rd Mesa. He wants to share his knowledge and experience, insights into everyday Hopi life ways. He offers unique sightseeing tour both informative and entertaining.

Straight from earning his Ph.D. in 2014, Dr. Jason Kaiser came to Southern Utah University with a literal understanding of the world and how it works. As an Assistant Professor of Geology in the Department of Physical Science, Kaiser's classroom is rich and dynamic, incorporating his global research into the curriculum.

This event is open to the public and a part of the Paiute Educational Access Camp Experience (PEACE), an annual summer camp for Paiute youth. This program is made possible with support from the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, SUU - Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and Utah Humanities
