Archaeologist Maria Hroncic-Connor explores the causes and effects of the historical uprising in post-contact New Mexico that culminated in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Hroncich-Connor’s lecture will also examine how life changed for Pueblo people once the Spanish fled from the colony.

Maria Hroncich-Conner is a Senior Archaeologist at Versar, Inc. and an Adjunct Faculty member at New Mexico State University with a decade of experience in Southwestern archaeology and history. She has conducted a variety of archaeological excavations, surveys, historical investigations, academic presentations, and course instruction exclusively in the American Southwest. Ms. Hroncich-Conner is currently working on her doctorate at the University of New Mexico with a focus on the archaeology of colonial contact and Pueblo-Spanish interactions.
