Santa Fe, a city that boasts a 400-plus year history will be the site of this workshop. Settlement in the area by Indigenous Pueblo groups predates European contact; their settlements along the Rio Grande have existed for centuries. The workshops will be structured around the concept of homelands and include the study of historic sites, artifacts and stories in Santa Fe 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 homelands.
