Caroline Wise holding a basket made of Yucca fiber at Tuzigoot National Monument in Arizona

A rare Saturday mini-roadtrip took us north to Tuzigoot National Monument in Clarkdale, Arizona. We’ve visited Tuzigoot previously but never before for a talk. The subject that interested Caroline enough to ask me to accompany her was a presentation by archaeologist Zack Curcija¬†about the use of Yucca fibers among indigenous people of the southwest. As happens so often when I’m reluctant about something I’m not sure I’ll have an interest in, it turns out that listening to just about anyone who is passionate about something is enough to draw me in and start wishing I knew more or wonder when their next talk is scheduled.
