The New Mexico State Library is excited to announce the addition of Journeys and Pathways: Contemporary Pueblo Women in Leadership, Service, and the Arts to our circulating Southwest History and Culture collection. It will be made available for circulation via interlibary loan as well. This volume contains the transcripts form The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s oral history project documenting the lives of 19 contemporary Pueblo women.
“Within New Mexico Pueblo communities, women take on a variety of leadership roles. They are activists, artists, teachers, business owners, innovators, tribal officials, and sit on various Boards. They fight for rights, proper recognition, sustainability, resources, and decolonization. They fight against exploitation, encroachment, destruction, abuse, and violence. Journeys and Pathways interviewed nineteen Pueblo women to document the stories of their professional lives. A seventy-minute video compilation of the interviews will debut at a later date. These contemporary perspectives add to the archival record of Pueblo perseverance and resilience.” (IPCC website). For more information on this project visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center online.
