Alexandra Greenwald, PhD — Continuing Education Series
January 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5
Join us on Wednesday, January 8 at 6 p.m. when Alexandra Greenwald, PhD, the curator of ethnography at NHMU, presents “Parenting in Ancient Western North America.”
What was is like to be a parent in ancient western North America? Learn about breastfeeding practices, how mothers transported their infants, what their parents fed them, and gain insight into how they learned to hunt and gather foods for themselves. Discover how these findings can help us understand how parents balanced childcare and work, and how people coped with climate change and food scarcity in the past.
