mission statement

Supporting programs that focus on the diverse people of the Southwest, their past history, as well as their present interactions through the context of their cultures, history and community.


Through its programs, supporters, community outreach, and other activities, the team at Adventures in Anthropology, Inc. strives to benefit the public and especially school-aged children’s programs that encourage opportunities to learn the rich history of the people of the Southwest.


Archaeologist and retired Open Space Superintendent Dr. Matt Schmader has worked for 39 years in southwestern archaeology, principally in the middle Rio Grande Valley. He has worked on sites of virtually every cultural time period, ranging from PaleoIndian campsites to Archaic structure, and early ancestral puebloan pit houses to classic period petroglyph sites and pueblo villages. From Spanish contact/colonial sites to the historic red light district of downtown Albuquerque.
