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.

Reflections on Counterculture in the Southwest
New Mexico History Museum
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
A Virtual Discussion

Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest co-curators Meredith Schweitzer and Jack Loeffler revisit the making of the 2017-2018 exhibit on the occasion of the release of a virtual version of the exhibit.


The talks Youtube link: https://youtu.be/9ZHCPqooom0

You are invited to move through the virtual exhibition at your own pace by using this link: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=32czx9Mmbgs

Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest was an exhibition in the Herzstein Gallery at the New Mexico History Museum from May 14, 2017 through February 11, 2018, and lives on today in a virtual format captured by 3D photography. This virtual version of the exhibition highlights the counterculture movement of the 1960s and 70s in the American Southwest.

By 1967, and the “Summer of Love,” New Mexico was experiencing its own counterculture movement. Issues of social and political justice, national identity and social norms triggered activism and a search for alternative living situations across the country. Counterculture may be best described by Gary Snyder who speaks of the movement as the “discovering of another choice, another path away from capitalism other than European Marxist enlightenment ideas.” Through archival footage, oral histories, photography, and artifacts, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest examines this era of social, cultural, political, and environmental activism.

CANCELED: 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.

Bears Ears: The Vision for an Indigenous National Monument
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
a Zoom lecture with Angelo Baca

Based on a film about Bears Ears, this talk with Angelo Baca (Navajo / Hopi) ties together many different strands of Utah Navajo culture and history, San Juan county politics, Navajo Nation involvement in the region, and anthropological research. It seeks to cover a basic introduction to the importance of the landscape of the Indigenous people by the Indigenous peoples of that region. Of course, it is only a foundation from which to examine a particular perspective - the Indigenous perspective - and it often is not given serious consideration, or left out entirely. The project tells the story through an Indigenous lens.

On June 24 at Noon, go to following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85765496689
