New Mexico's wounds of colonialism run deep, despite
the delicate balance of the three cultures—Anglo, Hispano and Native
American—so often touted as an attraction for tourists. --- At a conference held in
northern New Mexico last weekend, the pain of these old grievances was never
far below the skin.
Called Historias de Nuevo Mexico and held at the El Rito campus of Northern
New Mexico College, the purpose of the conference was to present complementary
perspectives of the state’s unique history to correct the picture cultivated by
mainstream historians celebrating the state’s centennial.
