Mulattos of Cochiti: Caste and Race in Spanish Colonial New Mexico

Please join the Friends of History along with State Historian Rob Martinez, for a presentation which examines the role of racial mixing, identity, and the categorizing of humans living in Spanish Colonial New Mexico.

The approach will be through the lens of the casta, or caste system. Historical research, genealogy, and DNA all converge to provide a clearer understanding of Hispano roots in New Mexico, as well as in Latino-Meso America and Hispanic Europe.

The Quilt Project: How Art Translates Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

The Red Quilt Solidarity Project (RQSP) is a national initiative to raise awareness of violence against women and children with a focus on Missing/Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The RQSP is open to all people who wish to speak out about violence against women and children all over the world. The RQSP was initiated by Tina Sparks as her BFA Senior Project at the Institute of American Indian Arts. The project was publicly launched in February, 2019, and has received numerous panel contributions from across the country. The intention for this project is to be a visual voice to evoke visibility, funding and change for issues surrounding violence against women and children. The long-term goal for the Red Quilt Solidarity Project is to transport and display the quilts/panels on the national mall in Washington, DC, much like the AIDS quilt in the 1980’s. Tonight’s event will be a collaborative presentation of information surrounding issues of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women initiating and inviting community conversation.

Please note that you must be a member of the Friends of Indian Art in order to participate in FIA events. You can learn more about joining the friends group by visiting its page on the Museum of New Mexico Foundation’s website.
