Udall Dinner: $175
You are cordially invited to the 12th Annual Stewart Udall Legacy Dinner ~A benefit for the Santa Fe Conservation Trust
The Stewart Udall Environmental Award is given to honor those values, that work, or that person or persons who inspire us to love the land, care for it, preserve its sweep and heal its wounds. In honoring Stewart, we seek to encourage every man and woman, every modest friend, to rise to the peaks, to never give up, nor ever lose touch with the black earth, the trails between towns, the web of community and the land.
2013 Honoree – N. Scott Momaday
A native of Oklahoma and a member of both the Kiowa and Cherokee tribes, N. Scott Momaday is a writer, teacher, lecturer and artist. His first novel House Made of Dawn led to the breakthrough of Native American literature into the American mainstream after the novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1969. Momaday is considered the founding author in what has been coined the Native American Renaissance. He has been featured in numerous documentaries, including The West, for his masterful retelling of Kiowa history and legend. Momaday is also the founder of the Rainy Mountain Foundation and Buffalo Trust, a nonprofit organization working to preserve Native American cultures.
Acknowledging the important role that SFCT plays in preserving wildlife habitat, the evening’s festivities will also include a special presentation by the Wildlife Center of Española.
Also joining us at the dinner will be Dorothy Massey from Collected Works Bookstore, who will have a fresh and relevant selection of books available for purchase.
