“The Road to Santa Fe” A Convergence of Cultures
New Mexico History Museum
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
A film presentation to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail

The history of the Santa Fe Trail provides the focus of a new documentary being distributed to PBS stations throughout the US this Fall. Entitled “The Road to Santa Fe,” this 90-minute program traces the main routes of the trail from Missouri to Santa Fe, spotlighting some of the landmark venues associated with it. Produced to coincide with the bicentennial of the trail, the documentary begins with the departure of a small group of traders from Franklin, Missouri in September of 1821 on the first successful trading expedition to Santa Fe. It proceeds through the six decades of the trail’s active trading life, highlighting the main events and historical characters connected to it. With the assistance of noted historians such as Leo Oliva, a founding member of the Santa Fe Trail Association, and Frances Levine, former director of the New Mexico History Museum who currently serves as president of the Missouri Historical Society, the documentary reflects upon the role of the Santa Fe Trail in the westward expansion of the United States and its impact on the relationship between the US and Mexico. It also explores the impact of the trail on the indigenous inhabitants of the region through which it passed. The documentary includes narrated excerpts from journals written by historical figures who traveled the trail, including William Becknell, George Sibley, Josiah Gregg, Susan Shelby Magoffin and Marian Sloan Russell. The producer of the documentary, Dave Kendall of Prairie Hollow Productions, tells of his family’s connection to the trail as one of his ancestors gained employment as a teamster and subsequently settled on a farm near Council Grove, Kansas, a noted rendezvous site on the trail.

Seating will be limited.

Join us for a zoom talk on Yokai: Cataloging the Unknowable
Museum of International Folk Art
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Matt Meyer, Yokai illustrator and folklorist based in Japan, will share a brief history of Yokai and the ways in which they are often categorized. He also discusses why Yokai are in many ways uncategorizable because their very nature is unknowable, contradictory, and folkloric. Using his engaging illustrations, he will also share 2 or 3 stories of Yokai.

Let’s Take a Look - November 2021
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
In-Person and Online Event

On November 17, 2021, MIAC staff are returning to the museum’s virtual lobby to look at your treasures for Let’s Take a Look. Bring a weaving, ceramic, piece of jewelry (or something else!) to our Zoom meeting, and curator of ethnology Tony Chavarria (Santa Clara Pueblo), curator of archaeological research collections Julia Clifton, and other staff members will attempt to identify and explain the item.

Curators are experts in items from the Southwest, but are willing to take a look at anything that is “brought in.” Previous attendees have often found that the experience of chatting with a group of curators is often just as—or perhaps even more—informative and enjoyable than the identification of the object itself.

Please note that federal and state policies prohibit curators from appraising an item; the museum neither appraises or authenticates works of art.
