This talk explores the phenomenon of pseudoarchaeology that is featured in tales of ancient apocalypses and aliens wrongly attributing archaeological sites in the Americas to non-human or mythical ancestors, belittling the Indigenous communities who first occupied this land and created them.

For our adult Halloween fans and paranormal enthusiasts, we’ll have an adult-only bonfire night with drinks and spooky storytelling with award-winning author John Kachuba.
