What is Anthropology?

1 / 2

Meet your tour guide, Miss Mae, to discuss anthropology and culture, research and the scientific process, and Native Nations of Arizona to prepare for your virtual Muse2You exhibit tour about the O'odham.

Welcome to Arizona State Museum

This tour reinforces skills in using primary sources, visual literacy, observation, listening, map reading, scientific process, farming methods, and cultural competency. It increases awareness of Indigenous history, Indigenous culture, traditional ecological knowledge, and impact of Spanish, Mexican, and American cultures and laws on Indigenous peoples.

The Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona, is located on land that has been inhabited by Indigenous peoples for 13,000 years. Today, the Tucson area is home to the Tohono O’odham and the Pascua Yaqui. Currently there are 22 federally recognized tribes with reservation lands in the state of Arizona. Committed to diversity and inclusion, the University and ASM strive to build sustainable relationships with sovereign Native Nations and Indigenous communities.
