This free history program starts with a memorable presentation strongly linked to Kingman. Mined extensively in our area, turquoise has a long-standing tradition with Southwest Native cultures; special significance and meanings vary with specific tribes. Turquoise forms in arid regions through the process of water seeping through rock and interacting with minerals such as copper.
