In 1966, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History discovered what were believed to be the remains of Jesuit missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino. How could they be sure it was indeed the legendary explorer? Are the remains buried at Magdalena de Kino in Sonora really his? In this, the 50th anniversary year of the discovery of that grave, Martínez's research strives to answer that question. Martínez is permanent archaeologist and professor-investigator for the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia  (INAH) in Sonora, Mexico. Reception follows program.

The Center for English as a Second Language (CESL) is one building east of ASM north. This is a presentation of the Arnold and Doris Roland Distinguished Speaker Series, made possible by the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Roland. Reception underwritten by the ASM Director's Council.
