"Indian Removal and the Violent Origins of Spanish and Mexican Settlement in New Mexico"
Presented by David Correia, Ph.D.
The arrival of the Americans in the 1840s exacerbated land issues which have continued to be a major and contentious concern for both Native and Hispano communities in northern New Mexico.
Join us for this fascinating talk, the first of three in Las Golondrinas' Winter Lecture Series, "Speaking of Tradition: New Perspectives on Old Traditions."
Dr. Correia is an Assistant Professor in the department of American Studies at U N M. He is the author of Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggles in Northern New Mexico.
