Annual MIAC Native American Veterans Day Celebration
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Includes Ceremony and Screening of "Defending the Fire"
Join us for our annual program celebrating the sacrifices and valor of our Native American Veterans.
Program begins at 11am and includes:
At 2pm, we screen "Defending the Fire," a recent release by Silver Bullet Productions which garnered Best Picture in 2017’s SWAIA’s Class X, followed by a discussion with producer Pam Pierce.
From Silver Bullet’s Website: Since the beginning of time, Native American Warriors have navigated a unique cultural and spiritual path, relying on the tenets of the Warrior in ancient and modern warfare. The lessons of the Warrior are universal; the spirit of the Warrior survives, even in the face of conflict.
With a focus on the spiritual and historic journey of Native American Warriors, Silver Bullet Productions will present the story of the Warrior, the importance of cultures in modern quests, and the lessons of War through the lens of these cultures. The characters will be elders and historians from New Mexican tribes and Native veterans of World War II, and the Korean, Vietnam and Afghanistan/Iraq conflicts. Grounded in research and guided by voices of men and women in our armed forces, the documentary will reveal the distinct motive, preparation, conflict, and healing of tribal soldiers.
Volunteers will cheerfully accept your donation of gently used folk art items (ceramics, ethnic apparel, jewelry, small furniture, framed art, sculpture, linens, masks, figurines) in exchange for a tax-deductible donation receipt, from 11 AM to 12 pm at the Museum of International Folk Art, on Museum Hill.
Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June 2017-February 2018 for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.
Siddiq Hans von Briesen, the brother of Lama Foundation cofounder Barbara Durkee, was an early communard at Lama. Von Briesen will speak about the commune’s evolution over its fifty years.

The 1960s: Great Dreams or Grim Nightmares? A RENESAN Symposium
New Mexico History Museum
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The way you answer that question may depend on your age, your gender, your geographic location, your income, and your race. The Bay Area, Mississippi, Taos, Greenwich Village, and Chicago tell different stories, with some common threads running through them. For some, it was a time of great promise and renewed social activism; for others, these same activities posed a challenge to the established order and a threat to national security.
RENESAN, Santa Fe’s Institute for Lifelong Learning, is collaborating with the New Mexico History Museum and the Palace of the Governors to expand the reach of its exhibit “Voices of Counter Culture in the Southwest” to the nation as a whole, examining some of the major issues raised by the times and exploring their impact on American culture today.
Over the course of four days, November 13 to 16, scholars, writers, photographers, and activists, both local and national, will discuss the key themes that take these conversations far beyond the cliché of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.
