Thanks to a generous grant from the Bureau of Land Management New Mexico State Office, we have been able to partner with the New Mexico Office of Archaeological Services and the Isleta Department of Cultural and Historic Preservation to support programs for tribal members, particularly tribal youth, interested in reconnecting with traditional lifeways– such as working with yucca– and traditional cultural properties. 

OAS will be coordinating lifeways programs with three tribes who have historic connections to southern New Mexico: the Mescalero Apache, Pueblo of Isleta, and Ysleta del Sur Pueblo. The DCHP will be leading youth field trips to archaeological sites both on and off the pueblo lands.

Born into two of the most influential families of the state—Los Luna and Los Otero—Nina moved to Santa Fe as a teenager and made it her home for a lifetime. Presented by Deborah Blanche. Deborah Blanche -- actor, writer and storyteller -- has been creating Chautauqua programs for NMHC since 1985. Deb has toured coast-to-coast with her ever-expanding repertoire of Western women.

October 9th, 4:30-5:30pm MST, hosted by National Hispanic Center (ADDRESS)

People have sung stories since times immemorial as a way to memorize and record history and myths. A kind of stone age data base. The songs we today call medieval and traditional ballads have their roots among Nordic epic sagas, French romantic lays, Celtic lore and World mythology. As the songs have traveled, they have metamorphosed and melted into various musical traditions, weaving a world of fantasy and mystery. Scott and Johanna Hongell-Darsee are a duo who perform early traditional ballads, songs and tales from Scandinavia, The British Isles and other parts of the world. Their performances blend both modern and traditional instruments in unique, original arrangements. Scott and Johanna have performed all over the U.S. at festivals, theaters, arts councils, universities, schools, libraries, and live broadcasts.

When Judith Avila, a graduate of Duke University, met the late Chester Nez in 2007, she realized he had a compelling story to tell.Although 420 Navajo code talkers served in the Marines during World War II, none had written memoirs until Nez's 2012 autobiography Code Talker. Chester Nez (1921-2014) was one of the original 29 code talkers, men who developed the only unbroken code in modern warfare and took it into battle against the Japanese. His life demonstrated how challenges enhance strength and how diversity augments the strength of a nation.

Pluribus Unum: El Norte Project

August through October



Since 2012, Santa Fe’s mobile art-space has been traveling across the state of New Mexico working on a statewide photographic portrait project, E Pluribus Unum. The mobile gallery is outfitted as a mobile black and white photography studio. Visitors bring an object of personal significance and sit for a portrait, holding their special object. Prints are made immediately using Axle’s solar-powered printer. One copy is given to the participant, another is pasted onto the exterior of the Axle mobile art-space. Over the course of each iteration of the project the exhibition grows to include many hundreds or thousands of portraits and writings by participants. E Pluribus Unum: El Norte will visit communities spread across northern New Mexico, from August through October.
