Pueblo Pottery and Embroidery Demonstration
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Michael Bancroft (Ohkay Owingeh) and Shawn Tafoya (Santa Clara)

Michael Bancroft is a micaceous pottery instructor who discovered his love of clay in 2004. He feels his inspiration comes from his children’s grandmother, Mary Sedillo, and his grandmother, Emily Povijua, both of whom made pottery. He has taken and  instructed many art classes at the Poeh Cultural Center.

 

While also a skilled potter, Shawn Tafoya will demonstrate embroidery, another of his passions. Although a traditionalist in terms of materials and technique, his embroidery is strikingly innovative. Ideas for his work come from different sources, including nature, his Pueblo and other tribal groups, pop culture and his family’s art.

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
MIAC Curators Examine Your Treasures

MIAC Curators gather in the lobby of the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month awaiting whatever treasures may walk through the door. This is your opportunity to bring a family heirloom, something special from your collection, or a piece you know nothing about. Naturally, they prefer items from the American Southwest (in keeping with the museum’s focus), but they will check out anything you bring in.

Federal law prohibits curators from "appraising" any items, but they will direct you to appropriate resources. For more information, visit this page: http://indianartsandculture.org/lets-take-a-look.

Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow: An Officer’s Photo Album of 1866 New Mexico Territory
New Mexico History Museum
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Please join us for a talk by author Devorah Romanek, joined by Hannah Abelbeck, New Mexico History Museum Photo Archivist, and UNM Professor of American Studies Jennifer Denetdale, on this compelling book which captures a fraught and complex moment in the history of the American Southwest, and includes a Preface written by Daniel Kosharek, previous Photo Curator at the New Mexico History Museum, Santa Fe, NM.

In the aftermath of the Civil War, the New Mexico Territory endured painful years of hardship and ongoing strife. During this turbulent period, a US military officer stationed in the territory assembled an album of photographs, a series of still shots taken by one or more anonymous photographers. Now, some 150 years later, this remarkable volume reproduces the anonymous officer’s “souvenir album” in its totality.

Offering an important glimpse of the American Southwest in the mid-1860s, the photo album places the photographs in historical context in connection to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods, including the French intervention in New Mexico and the internment of Navajos at the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.

In addition to containing what may be the earliest extant photographs of Navajo Indians, the album features both studio and field images of U.S. Army officers, Mexican politicians, and various sites throughout New Mexico. 

Books for purchase will be made available from the Museum Foundation shop, located in the History Museum.

Free event-bottled water only please
