Cerámica de los Ancestros: Central America’s Past Revealed

Join us for a special guided tour in Spanish at the National Museum of the American Indian. We’ll discover Central America’s diverse and dynamic ancestral heritage throughout the ceramics featured in this exhibition. Cerámica de los Ancestros examines seven regions representing distinct Central American cultural areas that are today part of Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. These objects at the exhibition ( works in gold, jade, shell, and stone) illustrate the richness, complexity, and dynamic qualities of the Central American civilizations that were connected to peoples in South America, Mesoamerica, and the Caribbean through social and trade networks sharing knowledge, technology, artworks, and systems of status and political organization.

The group will go for drinks after the tour. This is a unique opportunity to learn about Hispanic culture, meet great people and practice Spanish.
