Pueblo Communities across the Threshold of Spanish Colonization: Examples of Resiliency

Please join Prter Swentzell, Assistant Professor and Chair of Indigenous Liberal Studies, Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), as he presents at our June Friends of History lecture series event.

This presentation focuses on the Pueblo nations; in particular, the Tewa-speaking Pueblo communities of northern New Mexico. Pueblo peoples have managed to find creative ways to survive and thrive as sedentary agriculturalists for thousands of years in the high desert environment of the southwestern United States.

Through the impositions of various waves of colonialism, Pueblo people have relied on their axiologies to maintain strong linguistic and cultural traditions in the communities they have lived in for centuries.

Free auditorium event with limited seating-bottled water only please

Suggested donations:$10.00 per person. Donation box will be provided near the entrance to the auditorium. Donations can also be made on an annual basis by becoming a Friends of History member by calling the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, 505.982.6366 ext. 100

Esteban: The African Slave Who Explored America

Please join Dennis Herrick, Author; Lecturer Emeritus of Journalism, UNM, for our July Friends of History lecture series event.

When Pueblo Indians say, “The first white man we saw was a black man,” they are referring to Esteban, who came to New Mexico in 1539.

Books about the history of America have ignored Esteban or belittled his importance, often using his Spanish slave nickname, Estebanico. This book gives the African Esteban full credit for his courage and his skill as a linguist and cultural intermediary, who was trusted and respected by Indians from many tribes across the continent.

Pueblo Independence Day
Jemez Historic Site
7:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Come join us for our 16th annual commemoration of Pueblo Independence Day. On August 10, 1680—the Pueblo People of New Mexico—aided by Apache and Navajo allies—launched a successful rebellion against Spanish colonization. Commemorative activities will begin with a pilgrimage run from Walatowa plaza in Jemez Pueblo to Giusewa Pueblo kiva at Jemez Historic Site (approximately a half marathon or 13 miles). Participating in this run, or supporting a runner, is a way to pay tribute to the Ancestors and show appreciation for the sacrifices they made. Their brave resistance helped preserve the Pueblo way of life: our culture, our languages and our right to one day reclaim our aboriginal lands. The run begins at 7:00AM, and the general public is welcome to participate. Volunteers will provide water stations at one mile intervals, and a shuttle service for slow runners will be available. At 10:00AM, guest speakers will welcome all the runners and their sponsors to the site. The following festivities, between 10:30AM and 3:00PM, will feature: Jemez traditional dances and Native American flute music. There will also be authentic Native arts & crafts and Native food. There is no admission fee for any of the activities related to this event. Call 575-829-3530 for more information.

Letís Take a Look!
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
12:00 PM - 2:00 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.

EXHIBITION OPENING!
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
Diego Romero Vs. the End of Art

Diego Romero vs. the End of Art will be a dynamic exploration of a Cochiti Pueblo artist’s journey through life as depicted through his work.  For decades, California born Cochiti potter Diego Romero has created renowned historical and autobiographical artworks. Acclaimed for his neo-Mimbres pottery illustrating Pueblo Indian history, his father’s Korean War stories, and his relationships with women, family, substances and art, Romero’s work lays bare the life of one Native artist and Native history.  The exhibition narrative will be a biographical and culture history in conjunction with a conflict against a shadowy figure known only as the End of Art. Throughout the exhibition video presentations will feature interviews with the artist and others detailing his path and the evolution of his art. This will be one of the largest assemblages of Romero’s ceramic works and his lesser known multi-media drawings. Per conversations with the artist, several family members will be included as part of his story and as necessary allies in his battle with the nebulous nemesis, the End of Art. In an effort to engage a younger audience and the non-traditional museum visitor, the catalog will be a hybrid of a traditional volume combined with elements of a graphic novel. This method will convey Romero’s stories of cultural and personal endurance. It is hoped that Native youth in particular will relate to their story through art.  The goals of this exhibition are to share Romero’s unique and engaging stories of life and struggle through a cultural and pop culture lens, and the visitor will learn of Native survival and ultimately celebration.
