La Nina: Nina Otero-Warren
The NMHC Speakers Bureau presents, La Nina: Nina Otero Warren, hosted by Deborah Blanche. Born into the families Luna and Otero, Nina moved to Santa Fe as a teenager. La Nina was superintendent of schools. She was also an organizer of Santa Fe Fiesta, Indian Market, and Spanish Colonial Arts. She worked to get New Mexico women the right to vote, then ran for U.S. Congress in 1922.
Meet her in 1951 for her 70th birthday as she reminisces, confides, answers and disclaims -- and even tells some stories from her book, "Old Spain in our Southwest."
Deborah Blanche is an actor, writer and storyteller. Deborah Blanche has been creating Chautauqua programs for NMHC since 1985 and has toured coast-to-coast with her ever-expanding repertoire of Western women.
This is a free and open to the public event, brought to you by the New Mexico Humanities Council Speakers Bureau. New Mexico Humanities is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
