This year join us online for our 17th annual commemoration of Pueblo Independence Day. On August 10, 1680, the Pueblo People of New Mexico and Arizona launched a successful rebellion against Spanish colonization. Their brave resistance helped preserve the Pueblo way of life and shaped the history of New Mexico for all those who have come after. New Mexico Historic Sites honors the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 with a series of videos and virtual activities developed by the staff at Jemez Historic Site. These will include a showcase on past Pueblo Independence Day commemorations, a lecture on religion and rebellion in 17th century New Mexico, a green chile stew and fried bread cooking demonstration, and a lesson on the history and manufacture of Pueblo shields. All activities will be available free of charge starting on Monday August 10, 2020 at https://www.nmhistoricsites.org/jemez and https://www.facebook.com/jemezhistoricsite/.
Make your own Maraca! Arts Alive activity kits provided by MOIFA will be available on Thursday (8/13) & Saturday (8/15) at the Southside Library through curbside pick-up (noon-5:30 pm) while supplies last.
