It was nice to get back to the chapter meeting in February. During the meeting I described a shaman’s ritual that I witnessed in the Paramo of the Peruvian northern Andes. I suggested we should adapt this ritual to attract new members and make our chapter even more interesting. However no one seemed to be interested in participating since it included inhaling raw tobacco juice through your nose, climbing a high mountain and jumping into an ice cold lake. During my travels I will continue to look for other suggestions.
This site provides all our members a wonderful opportunity to experience archaeology first hand. We hope all of our members can take advantage of this opportunity to develop their skills as archeologists. If you are new to the chapter here is your opportunity to participate in an archaeological investigation and learn the techniques needed to properly document a site.
