Produced by Miguel Santistevan in collaboration with Cultural Energy (www.culturalenergy.org). Made possible with grants from the Panta Rhea and Christensen Foundations.
We return to the 3rd Annual Ben Lujan Leadership and Public Policy Institute held at New Mexico Highlands University on May 19 &20, 2008. Our presenters in this show, Shirley Romero-Otero, Don Bustos, and facilitator Paula Garcia, represent the contemporary struggle of land-based people in el norte: to defend traditional rights to local resources (land & water), while revitalizing and reinvigorating land-based livelihoods and economies.
Special thanks to Cipriano Vigil for our music.
