The Flagstaff Festival of Science

announces

STORIES IN STONE

with Dr. Jaime Awe

The 2021 Flagstaff Festival of Science will explore “Stories in Stone” on September 17-26 in Flagstaff, Arizona. Dr. Jaime Awe of Northern Arizona University, will kick off the free, 10-day adventure as he shares his passion and important research of the Belize River Valley. Dr. Awe will delight audiences with his vast knowledge of Mesoamerican Cave societies and the collapse of the Maya civilization.

“This year’s Festival of Science, whose theme is Stories in Stone, is a wonderful opportunity for me to share results of my long and ongoing research on Maya civilization, and on the significant information that is encoded in the monuments of the ancient Maya,” says Dr. Awe.  Maya monuments encode important information on how this fascinating civilization viewed their universe, and how they interacted socially, politically, and ritually with their gods and peers. 

The Festival of Science will feature a full program of events held Sept. 17-26, including a wide variety of  presentations, hands-on workshops and interactive discussions, classroom talks, and guided tours led by outstanding Flagstaff scientists, through which Festival-goers will also have the opportunity to learn about other cultures of the Americas.
