Norio Hayakawa

Norio Hayakawa at Placitas Library

~Marlane Gabel-Barton

On February 4, at 2:00 p.m., at the Placitas Community Library, Norio Hayakawa will be conducting a presentation, “The Truth Behind Area 51 in Nevada and Dulce, New Mexico.”

In addition to being a researcher, journalist, musician, and composer and citizen advocate, Norio is the Director of the Civilian Intelligence News Service, an alternative news service for the Citizens’ Oversight Committee on Government Accountability. He has spent many years investigating Area 51 in Nevada to determine the facts of the importance of that facility. In 1990, Norio accompanied a Japanese TV crew to document the goings-on near Area 51. The Japanese TV crew and Norio also visited Dulce, New Mexico, immediately following their investigations in Nevada. In March of 2009, Norio organized the first “Underground Base” conference in Dulce, New Mexico. Norio subsequently spoke at several conferences discussing the “alleged” Dulce base. Although Norio takes a somewhat skeptical position when it comes to an actual physical underground base in Dulce, he believes that both Area 51 and Dulce have become two of the most popular topics today.

Friends of Coronado Historic Site Winter Lecture Series presents “Large-Scale Language Models of Puebloan Prehistory”

This program will be presented by Eric Blinman, PhD on Sunday, February 19, at 2:00 p.m.

Dr. Eric Blinman is the director of the New Mexico Office of Archaeological Studies, the contract archaeology of the Museum of New Mexico. He has an AB in anthropology from UC Berkley, an MA and PhD from Washington State University and has been focusing on Southwest archaeology since 1979.

“More than a century of research has not produced a consensus about major issues of Puebloan culture history. A recent model by Dr. Scott Ortman is in contrast to a newer alternative model which builds on patterns of material culture style and pulses of migration. You’ll come away with a more definitive picture of the pueblo peoples, their relationship to each other, how long they have lived here and where they came from.”

The program will be held at the Sandoval County Historical Society Museum, at Edmond Road and Hwy 550. General admission is $5; Friends of CHS members are free.
