Participants are encouraged to explore such issues as New Mexican history, comparison of founding documents of the United States and New Mexico, land ownership, and cultural pluralism and diversity.

The NMHC requests funding support from the NEH "We the People" initiative to support activities related to the RFP, "What Does it Mean to be a New Mexican?" It will build upon its planning and programming for the New Mexico Centennial of statehood in 2012. NEH We the People funds will be used for 1) regrant projects, and 2) the National History Day competition.
