Where: Visitor Center Discovery Lab

When: 11:00 a.m. (1 hour)

Join the Colorado Desert Archaeology Society for a talk by retired Professor of History George Harwood Phillips about conflicts between early American settlers and Native Americans leading to the pan-Indian Garra Revolt of 1851.  This coordinated uprising sent shockwaves throughout the state.  Martial law was declared in San Diego while in Los Coyotes Canyon a band of Cahuillas engaged troops sent out to put down the Revolt.  A State Park monument at the Santa Catarina parking area in the Canyon commemorates this uprising.  The meeting will be held in the Discovery Lab at the Anza-Borrego Park Visitor Center; the public is invited.
