Arizona Illustrated

Season 8, Episode 19 of 40

Arizona State Museum: Founded in 1893, Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona is the oldest and largest anthropological research facility in the U.S. Southwest. It is also Arizona’s official archaeological repository, housing more than 3 million cataloged objects, and growing by as much as 1,000 cubic feet of bulk material every year. Three separate collections are especially prized (pottery, basketry, photography), designated as American Treasures by the U.S. government, which underscores the museum’s vital importance to the nation's shared cultural history. Endangered Language: What happens when your language is in critical danger of dying out? This is true for the majority of Indigenous tribal languages in the United States. Meet Ofelia Zepeda, a UA linguistics professor who has spent her life’s work preserving the Tohono O’odham language. She, along with two parents, share their efforts to preserve this important heritage for future generations. Justice at ATC: A behind the scenes look at Arizona Theatre Company’s world premiere musical ‘Justice.’ The play examines the friendship between Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, what it means to be the first and how the court continues to move forward thanks to their efforts. Playwright Laruen Gunderson also created a third character, Vera, who represents the future of the court by being the first black female Supreme Court Justice. In a strange case of life imitating art or art imitating life, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson was being sworn in while the cast was in rehearsals.
