Learning with each other

Though they might live apart, resident Vicki Halls and her sister have never stopped reading, and learning, together.

The sisters have their own book club, and recently they’ve decided to study up on the history and habits of the Anasazi culture. The Anasazi were a prehistoric Native American civilization that lived in North America from approximately 100 to 1600 AD, with origins dating back to 1500 BC.

According to the Smithsonian Institute, the Anasazi lived in the Four Corners region of America, where Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona meet. This early civilization built extravagant dwellings and laid hundreds of miles of roads to network villages to one another. Their descendants are the Hopi, Zuni, and Pueblo tribes.

Based on their reading, Vicki and her sister decided to launch a project, where one makes a portion and then sends it to the other, and so on. What began as a simple gourd is now a beautiful re-creation of Anasazi art in Vicki’s home.
