Pueblo Book Club: ‘Pueblos, Spaniards, and the Kingdom of the New Mexico’ By John L Kessell
02:00 pm - 04:00 pm MDT
This Book Club will be hosted by Jon Ghahate. Reasoning for Book Selection by Jon Ghahate:
The cultural heritage of NM’s Pueblo peoples are integral to their communities. October’s reading centers on the impact of Spanish colonization.
Accounts of the interactions between Pueblo communities and the Spanish invaders during the 1600s are based solely from the Spanish perspective, as they are the ones who recorded it. Thus, that aspect of NM’s history is from the intruders’ standpoint. Efforts have been made to include the Pueblo perspective of historic events. More contemporary re-examined chronicles are the basis of ‘Pueblos, Spanish, and their Kingdom of New Mexico’. a well-researched portrayal of the Pueblo world, their societies, the Spanish incursion and occupation, and the tumultuous struggle for survival and existence.
