Brown Bag Lunch Series: Caballeros y Vaqueros: The Origin of Western Horse Cultures

September 12
Noon – 1:00 p.m.

Dub and Mozelle Richardson Theater

Since the domestication of horses 4,000 – 6,000 years ago, humans have created and used different technologies to use them in manners useful to human lifeways. Caballeros (horsemen) were the primary engines in driving the evolution of those technologies. Managing other animals from horseback, especially herding cattle, resulted in a workforce especially suited for cow-work. These vaqueros (literally cow-men) in Central America, primarily Mexico, eventually evolved into today’s cowboys. Join Michael Grauer, Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art, as he discusses what has become one of the most recognized national symbols in the world. Bring your lunch or purchase one at The Museum Grill. Reservations are not required. Free admission to the Theater and The Museum Grill.
