¡Que Vivan las Acequias! #31 – Ben Lujan Leadership and Public Policy Institute

Produced by Miguel Santistevan in collaboration with Cultural Energy (www.culturalenergy.org). Made possible with a grant from the Panta Rhea and Christensen Foundations.

In show #31 you can hear the opening address of the 3rd Annual Ben Lujan Leadership and Public Policy Institute held at New Mexico Highlands University on May 19 & 20, 2008 by Regis Pecos, Chief of Staff for Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ben Lujan. The objectives for the Institute are to convene community leaders, youth, and students to learn from successful projects and campaigns to protect land and water rights, to discuss ways to replicate projects that demonstrate the viability of land-based livelihoods, and to identify strategies to integrate community interests and knowledge into the educational system.

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