ABOUT THE SITE
Coronado Historic Site (CHS) and the ruins of Kuaua Pueblo are located just minutes north of Albuquerque (off of I-25, Exit 242) in Bernalillo. Kuaua was the northernmost of the twelve villages. Its name means "evergreen" in Tiwa. It was first settled around AD 1325 and was occupied by approximately 1,200 people when Coronado arrived. Conflict with Coronado and later Spanish explorers led to the abandonment of this site within a century of first contact. Today, the descendants of the people of Kuaua live in the surviving Tiwa-speaking villages of Taos, Picuris, Sandia, and Isleta.

ABOUT THIS LECTURE
The Portuguese Empire, AD 1415 to 1668 - recorded May 28th 2020
Beginning with the capture of Ceuta in 1415, Portugal sparked a colonial enterprise that would transform the small medieval kingdom into a vast and wealthy empire. Dynamic leadership and religious zealotry fueled exploration and conquests in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. In doing so, the Portuguese revolutionized maritime travel, constructed elaborate trade monopolies, and developed the plantation system. This presentation explores Portugal’s triumphs and tribulations during the Age of Discovery.
