Description

What does it take to solve a mystery about an ancient Native American language group? 16th-century missionary texts, DNA sequencing methods, and lots of algorithms. Curators Peter Whiteley and Ward Wheeler discuss their project to map the evolution of Uto-Aztecan languages.

For more about some of the cultures in the Uzo-Aztecan language group, head over to the episode website: http://www.amnh.org/shelf-life

Shelf Life is a collection for curious minds—opening doors, pulling out drawers, and taking the lids off some of the incredible, rarely seen items in the American Museum of Natural History. Over 12 episodes, Shelf Life will explore topics like specimen preparation, learn why variety is vital, and meet some of the people who work in the Museum collections. Videos roll out monthly, and Episode 8 will premiere on June 19, 2015.
