Thu, Oct 26, 2017, 10:00am - 11:00am

Bear Canyon Estates, 4440 Morris Street Northeast, Albuquerque, NM 87111, United States

Story is the oldest form of communication there is. From the earliest gatherings and etchings on cave walls, Story explained a culture for those who later passed that way. Our brains are literally hardwired to understand facts, statistics, concepts and more through oral tradition. Story is the great connector between people and promotes an immediate bonding among listeners and the teller. The program’s concentration is on animal and trickster stories from the U. S. Southwest, Mexico, Cherokee and Africa. Multiple tales will be shared, as well as Cherokee traditions and more.

Chester Nez (1921-2014) was one of the original 29 code talkers, men who developed the only unbroken code in modern warfare and took it into battle against the Japanese. His life demonstrated how challenges enhance strength and how diversity augments the strength of a nation.

Genízaros Nation 

Genízaros Nation: Ethnogenesis, Place and Identity in New Mexico

Thu, Nov 9, 2017, 6:00pm - 7:30pm

4115 Silver Avenue Southeast, Albuquerque, NM, United States

In 1979 Fray Angélico Chávez reminded New Mexico who the Genízaros were and their place in history. Genízaro was the designation given during Spanish colonial times to indigenous people of mixed tribal origins living among the Hispano population in Spanish fashion. They got Spanish surnames from their masters, Christian names through baptism, spoke a provisional form of Spanish, and lived together or sprinkled among regional households, towns, and ranchos. Since the term was abolished in the 1821 Treaty of Córdoba with independence from Spain, historians had always assumed that the cultural memory of the people who comprised as much as a third of the population of New Mexico by 1776 was erased by time. In 1979, historian-anthropologist Gilberto Benito Córdova reminded New Mexico that in Abiquiú and other towns and barrios, many descendents of Genízaros indeed remember who they were and re-affirm who they are in their sense of community, and through ritual dance, song and ceremony. Enrique Lamadrid’s lecture recapitulates the work of successive generations of scholars, the awakening of what sociologist-philosopher Tomás Atencio in 1985 called "Genízaro Consciousness."

Professor Enrique Lamadrid (Ph.D. University of Southern California) taught folklore, literature, and cultural history in the UNM’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese. He edits UNM Press' Querencias Series. He still organizes local and international field schools in ethnographic documentation and cultural cartography, most recently based in Ecuador, Mora and Rudolfo Anaya's home town, Puerto de Luna. Lamadrid was awarded the Chicago folklore prize for his 2003 ethnography Hermanitos Comanchitos: Indo-Hispano Rituals of Captivity and Redemption and the Américo Paredes Prize for his cultural activism and museum curatorial projects.

Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest

Lama Community
Gallery talk with Siddiq Hans von Breisen

Sat, Nov 11, 2017, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

113 Lincoln Avenue, Santa Fe, NM, United States

At a time when concerts and gatherings on the West Coast gave birth to 1967's infamous "Summer of Love," New Mexico was experiencing its own social and environmental revolution depicted in Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest, an exhibition curated by Jack Loeffler and Meredith Davidson. 

 

The exhibition spans the decades of the 60s and 70s exploring this influx of young people to New Mexico and the subsequent collision of cultures. Through archival footage, oral histories, photography, ephemera and artifacts, the exhibition examines this cultural revolution and asks how these forms of rebellion inform the ways we think about contemporary social and political questions of what it means to be an engaged citizen.

 

Gallery talks occur monthly for the duration of the exhibit. 

 

The exhibit runs through February 11, 2018 at the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe. For more information, visit www.nmhistorymuseum.org

A Fork in the Road: J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Cold War

Sat, Nov 18, 2017, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

DeLavy House, 151 Edmond Rd, Bernalillo, NM

Jon Hunner, Director of the Public History Program at the New Mexico State University, explores how J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Los Alamos lab that created the atomic bomb for the Manhattan Project, participated in the post war policy-making which helped direct the nascent nuclear weapons program of the nation. "Oppie" was a key figure in the U.S. nuclear weapons program from 1945 to 1954 as he chaired important governmental committees. He also was a public intellectual who wrote and lectured about the Atomic Age and nuclear science across the country and internationally. In the early 1950s, he was subjected to a security clearance procedure that revoked his top secret clearance and removed his influence from nuclear policy making. His hearing is an interesting event that showed the tenor of the Red Scare of the times, a fascinating example of the contested relationship between science and society in regards to nuclear weapons, public policy, and the Cold War.
