New Mexico: Myths and Legends
The entire trip left me with many wonderful memories of Cuba...The Cuban people we met revealed the soul of Cuba by generously sharing their passion, creativity and knowledge with us. I especially enjoyed the last night in Havana when we gathered at the very cool tapas bar at sunset. Two authentic troubadours serenaded us with song and acoustic guitars. Wow!

Do you know the story of how Fred Harvey shaped tourism in New Mexico? Or how Po’Pay’s Rebellion sparked other revolts from enslaved Puebloans that drove the Spanish presence out for over a decade? Associate Chair of Ethnic Studies Dr. Elizabeth Archuleta will take us on a one-of-a-kind tour into the rabbit hole of myths and legends surrounding New Mexico.
Elizabeth spent a portion of her life teaching and researching Native American literature at the University of New Mexico, where she was heavily involved in campus and community efforts to connect people to New Mexico’s rich history. Join us as she unpacks key pieces of history and takes us on-site to the stories that shaped the state.
