La Canoa – Nina Otero-Warren: New Mexican 20th Century Mujerota

January 11

2 pm – 4 pm

In celebration of the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial, please join Dr. Anna Nogar as she explores the many facets of Nina Otero Warren. Early 20th century nuevomexicana Adelina “Nina” Otero-Warren ran for national office as a Republican candidate to Congress from New Mexico in 1922, shortly after women gained the right to vote. An advocate of suffrage, Otero-Warren achieved political prominence for her promotion of Spanish/English education, and involvement in educational and health efforts supporting Indo-Hispano nuevomexicanos. Otero-Warren authored Old Spain in Our Southwest (1936), was superintendent of schools, and an educator, who supported herself and her extended family; in short, a nuevomexicana mujerota.

This is a FREE event OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
