The prehistoric Hohokam used the Salt River to create a society that thrived for hundreds of years, only to collapse. Our modern society relies on that same river — but does that mean we could face the same fate as the Hohokam?

An exhibit at the Tempe History Museum will explore our future with water, starting with a discussion April 7 by Grady Gammage, Jr., a senior fellow at Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute. He is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. at the museum, 809 E. Southern Ave.

Lessons from the Hohokam: Our Future With Water, will give viewers a look into the rise and fall of the Salt River Valley’s ancient farmers and will highlight lessons we can learn from their successes and failures.
