Biographical Info Mary Ellen Gonzales traces her ancestry in New Mexico back to 1630, so New Mexico's history is her personal family history. She was raised on a sheep ranch near Chama.
Program Description Mary Ellen Gonzales is half Hispanic and half Anglo, making her a "culture bridger." She tells Hispanic stories and puts them into cultural and historical context. She also tells ghost and creation stories from many cultures. She challenges audiences of all ages to think about why things happen the way they do and how they feel about it. She brings sparkle, energy and charm to groups from elementary schools to libraries and museums.
