Summer Letters from the Reservation is a series of letters and oral histories read in chronological order, to represent the lives of the people on the Bosque Redondo Reservation, as well as the policies employed by the U.S. government toward Navajo and Mescalero Apache people from the summer months of June, July, and August 1863 to 1868.
A free light supper will be served (first come first serve) from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. green chile cheese brats, a Texas BBQ hotdog, an Italian style hotdog (bell peppers, onions, and a cream sauce), baked beans, chips/salsa, iced tea, coffee with a twist, and fry bread with honey or powdered sugar for dessert. Supper will be followed by the letter reading in the site auditorium until 7:00 pm. The event and food are free and are sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
