The Dispersal of the Domestic Horse into the Americas with Dr. Emily Jones

Dr. Emily Jones, an associate professor of the Anthropology Department at UNM, has been going through collections of bones that can help understand better the dispersal of the domestic horse into the Americas in the 16th and 17th centuries.


In this video, Jones shares her interest for animals, her fascination with bones and how indigenous people have a role in the history of the domestic horse.


Jones showed her excitement for this project, sharing “that by focusing on indigenous interactions with the horse we can maybe center those into indigenous stories more than has happened before.”
