Polynesian Contact With The Americas

Prehistoric Polynesian contact with the Americas has been considered by historians, archaeologists, and other scholars for centuries. Dr. Terry Jones will review evidence for such contact.

As early as the 1930s, Alfred Kroeber suggested that cultural similarities between southern California and Oceania could be the product of prehistoric trans-oceanic diffusion. In this talk, Dr. Terry Jones will review archaeological, linguistic, and other evidence for such contact in North and South America with an emphasis on recent genetic studies that challenge some longstanding ideas. This virtual event will be held on Zoom. Pay what you wish.

When: Thursday, March 18, 6:30 pm to 8 pm

City Ballet: Rhapsody In Blue

A story of four lovers. Resident Choreographer Elizabeth Wistrich takes inspiration for her ballets from the music.

Resident Choreographer Elizabeth Wistrich takes inspiration for her ballets from the music. Tallis: A story of four lovers is a Ralph Vaughan Williams work, which came from a borrowed theme from his 16th century English forebear, Thomas Tallis, and extended it into a fantasia – perfect for Ms. Wistrich’s interpretation using two couples dancing to the interwoven themes of the music. Choreographed in 1994 and last performed by City Ballet of San Diego in 1994.

When: Friday, March 5 through Sunday, March 21
