The Cultural Landscape of Cemamagi Du’ag


Spring 2020 Lecture Series 

Tumamoc Hill | Cemamagi Du’ag has been a site of culture and gathering for thousands of years. In this lecture series we will collectively learn from key voices about the vibrancy and essential connection between people and place. Join us to see the Hill of the Horned Lizard in a different way and appreciate its meaning through the millennia and into the future.
