Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.
Roxanne Swentzell is a member of the Naranjo family from the Santa Clara Pueblo of northern New Mexico. An internationally celebrated clay artist, Swentzell is also a pioneer in the permaculture movement intent on training younger Native Americans in Santa Clara and beyond to build hornos (adobe ovens), preserve seeds, select and cook native foods, and preserve the cultural attitudes that have sustained her people for millennia. She has been an activist on behalf of native cultural justice and is in the vanguard of today’s counterculture movement.
Free with admission.
