¡Que Vivan las Acequias! #28 – Development Threatens Taos Valley Acequias

Episode 28 of ¡Que Vivan las Acequias! – produced by Miguel Santistevan of the NMAA in collaboration with Cultural Energy (www.culturalenergy.org). Made possible with a grant from the Panta Rhea Foundation.

This show features a conversation with two parciantes and a mayordomo of three Taos acequias: Patricia Quintana of the Don Fernando Acequia Sur, Gene Sanchez of the Acequia Sanchez, and Dave Rael, mayordomo of the Spring Ditch. In this conversation we discuss some threats that the Taos acequias are facing with regard to development and politics.

Special thanks to Cipriano Vigil for our theme music and Quinto Sol for this month’s musical selection.
