We were born out of a mass genocide, Artemisio Romero y Carver said, and that violence has never been resolved in our culture. How do those ancestral wounds continue to persist in the present and what are some of the ways our communities, here and elsewhere, carry the medicine and resilience needed to heal. 

With Dra. Rocio Rosales Meza, Veronica Iglesias, Joseluis Ortiz, Ralph Martinez, and Michelle Angela Ortiz

What other identities and connections to place have been erased over the course of the many waves of imperialism and colonialism? How do we seek those ancestors? And how can we generate new relationships to land, place, and culture based on these connections?

After Spaniards arrived in the Americas, they introduced a rigid caste system that attempted to define all the new mixtures of people born from miscegenation. Who are we now? Who were we then? And were those earliest colonists themselves colores sospechos?

Porter Swentzell said history is mud. Jason Garcia called the people of New Mexico concrete. Embedded with stories near and far, and legacies of labor and memory, adobe is just as complicated.

As a counter to the hunk of sandstone that was once invested with so much power to divide, this episode of Unsettled examines the blueprints that our communities already have for coming together and being in right relation. In fact, while the obelisk sat inanimate, in Indigenous and mixed Indigenous communities across the state and throughout the Americas, the Matachines performed histories of international relations, generation after generation. Episode 5, part 4, looks at these relations — and reconciliation — through the prism of this shared dance. With Jason Garcia, Dr. Brenda M. Romero, Dr. David Garcia, and Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer. Stay tuned for Part 5 of this series launching on January 25th.

Can acknowledging ancestral lands and indigenous relatives counter settlerism in Santa Fe?
With Jade Begay, Porter Swentzell, Artemisio Romero y Carver

In Santa Fe, as in many cities, the most public versions of history are made visible in monuments that reinforce conquest and colonization. Those, it seems, are the only stories worth knowing and celebrating. But whose voices are being left out? And what stories are being erased?

Featuring writer Dr. Alicia Inez Guzmán, and SFAI Story Maps fellows Diego Medina and Christian Gering, this 9-part podcast unsettles what we think we know about Santa Fe and New Mexico’s past to help envision a more just future.

Grounded in archival research, oral history, and creative storytelling, Unsettled narrates relations across time, weaving in the identity crises of present-day Santa Fe and the controversy around the Soldiers' Monument with a chronicle of events that begins before European contact and continues into Spain's earliest occupation of Santa Fe in the 17th century.  Looking outward, Unsettled also reveals that this region's struggles are related to those taking place nationally and internationally by drawing on SFAI artists whose work addresses histories of colonization and their impact on the present. Reckoning with conflict and beauty near and far helps us imagine a future in which all our relations can tell rich stories of self and place.

Stay tuned for Part 4 of this series which launches in January 2021.
