Lifeways and Traditions of the Upper Río Grande Region with Herman Martínez, Ph.D. and Patricia Martínez, M.A.
This lecture will explore the traditions and lifeways of the Indo-Hispano communities of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. For generations, these traditions have been maintained and transferred through oral customs. The Martínez's work with Hilos Culturales, a Colorado non-profit organization, has centered on showcasing four hundred years of community folk music and traditions, recognizing and appreciating the mosaic of Indo-Hispanic heritage.
