Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Is it possible that the Aztecs may help feed a hungry planet tomorrow? The Aztecs developed revolutionary farming techniques that were a marvel. They also gave us many things we have in our pantry today, but also ate foods likely astonish us, such as corn fungus.

Dr. Dirk Van Tuerenhout, HMNS curator of anthropology, will explain how we can benefit from the Aztec's unique, evolutionary adaptations.

This lecture is co-sponsored by Archaeological Institute of America, Houston with support from Occidental Petroleum Talk, the Institute of Hispanic Culture and Food Ways Texas.
