Bata de cola and accessories, ca. 1940

Santa Fean Olinda Rodriguez was chosen by popular vote as Fiesta queen in 1936 and reappointed in 1937.   This flamenco outfit represents her early years in Santa Fe as a professional singer and dancer. Mrs. Rodriguez de Castner was involved with Santa Fe Fiesta most of her life and her life-long involvement with other community service organizations conveyed her sense of devotion to the City of Holy Faith.
