Contested Homelands: Unpacking the Knowledge, History and Culture of Historic Santa Fe, New Mexico

Two one-week workshops for eighty schoolteachers on the history of interactions between Native Americans and European settlers in Santa Fe.

The University of New Mexico, in conjunction with the New Mexico Office of the State Historian is seeking a grant award to provide teacher workshops during the summer of 2010. In the summer of 2010 Santa Fe, New Mexico will be celebrating its 400th anniversary (based on European settlement). This celebration is a timely opportunity for teachers from around the country to study the complex history and culture of the area by investigating the historic sites of Santa Fe and surrounding Pueblos. The workshops will be structured around the concept of homelands and include the study of historic sites, artifacts and stories in historic Santa Fe, New Mexico and surrounding communities. Specifically, the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro and the Palace of the Governors will be interpreted,studied and contrasted with the Pueblo history of the region to understand the complexity of historical homelands.
