About us

The San Juan Basin Archaeological Society (SJBAS) is a chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society. SJBAS consists of people who are interested in the archaeology and early history of the Four Corners region. We have members of all ages and backgrounds, some with extensive training in archaeology and others with more limited knowledge, but a strong desire to learn.

SJBAS has several objectives: to learn more about archaeology in general; to raise public awareness of our region's significant archaeological and historical resources; and to draw attention to the hazards of vandalism to these unique cultural sites. Members participate in lectures, discussions, field trips, and volunteer projects. Membership is open to any individual interested in the archaeology and history of the Four Corners region.
It is easy to join SJBAS - follow this link to the Membership Application.

The SJBAS meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. usually in the Lyceum in the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College. Meetings are highlighted by presentations on some phase of archaeology or a historical subject. Visitors and non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Members are eligible to participate in SJBAS field trips. They receive a monthly newsletter, the Moki Messenger, with information about current SJBAS activities and other matters of archaeological and historical interest.
