Linking Hispanic Heritage Through Archeology (LHHTA)

Winter 2016

Linking Hispanic Heritage Through Archeology (LHHTA) is a program for Hispanic youth ages 14-18 years that uses regional archeology as a bridge to connect urban Hispanic youth and their families to their own cultural history. Through visits to National Parks, local museums, and university laboratories, students engage in the study of Southwest archeology from the prehistoric to the historical periods. They also look at (and participate in) present-day activities that evolved from past cultural practices. This video was produced for the National Park Service Centennial Project to showcase the program.
