Pueblo Communities across the Threshold of Spanish Colonization: Examples of Resiliency

Please join Prter Swentzell, Assistant Professor and Chair of Indigenous Liberal Studies, Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), as he presents at our June Friends of History lecture series event.

This presentation focuses on the Pueblo nations; in particular, the Tewa-speaking Pueblo communities of northern New Mexico. Pueblo peoples have managed to find creative ways to survive and thrive as sedentary agriculturalists for thousands of years in the high desert environment of the southwestern United States.

Through the impositions of various waves of colonialism, Pueblo people have relied on their axiologies to maintain strong linguistic and cultural traditions in the communities they have lived in for centuries.

Free auditorium event with limited seating-bottled water only please

Suggested donations:$10.00 per person. Donation box will be provided near the entrance to the auditorium. Donations can also be made on an annual basis by becoming a Friends of History member by calling the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, 505.982.6366 ext. 100
