Saturday March 5th at 1pm at the Mohave Museum of History and Arts...

local author, historian and pod caster Jim Hinckley presents:

"History of The Great American Road Trip"
"From Alexander Winton's ill fated attempt to drive across the country in 1901

to Desi and Lucy's epic odyssey in "The Long, Long Trailer", the great American road trip was woven into the national tapestry.  It continues today with the obsession over Route 66, the quintessential American road trip.

In this presentation author Jim Hinckley shares the fascinating stories of Dr. Jackson's epic coast to coast adventure as the first person to drive coast to coast.  He also shares the story behind Emily Post's "By Motor to The Golden Gate",

Edsel Ford's trip to California in the summer of 1915, the history of Airstream trailers, and the evolution of Route 66 from highway to icon.

DURING WORLD WAR II, OVER 1,000 WOMEN SERVED IN THIS capacity, freeing male pilots for combat roles at a critical time of the war. The WASP ferried planes from factories to embarkation points; performed engineer test flying of repaired aircraft; and did target towing for gunnery training. By the spring of 1944, every P-51 Mustang flown in combat had already been flown by a WASP. This presentation shares their stories as fliers, patriots, and women who had to fight for the right to be called veterans. Natalie J. Stewart-Smith has been an educator for over 25 years and has taught at all levels. As a former Army officer and historian, she is interested in women’s contributions to the military, particularly those who served as military aviators.

Dr. Jay Cravath
for a trip back in western musical history.
Miners, Cowboys and Washerwomen:

The Worksongs of Arizona.

In a narrative and musical portrait of working-class music, Dr. Cravath explores its roots and rhythms in our state. From Hopi basket songs, the cotton fields of Chandler and the crooked streets of Jerome, songs were companions to the immigrants who explored and built our state.
Through performance and discussion, these tales, which reveal so much of the nature and
character of a people, are explored.
Free and open to the public!

Carrie Cannon presents:"Plants of the Mojave Desert and the Traditional Tribal Uses".

Although the desert may seem like a desolate landscape devoid of life, it is actually home to hundreds of unique species. Some are only visible or appear alive for a short time, others grow for hundreds of years, and many are not found anywhere else on earth.
Participants will learn about the many traditional Tribal plants uses, what plant life makes North American Deserts so unique, and how the Mojave Desert stands apart from the rest of America.

CONGRATULATIONS  to Louise Chambers, winner of the beautiful handmade bedspread.  Her lucky raffle ticket was drawn after the Christmas Gathering on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022.
