Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: Masks On! Pandemics and Epidemics in New Mexico History

November 21

2 pm (MTS)
Live via Zoom

Register in advance for this meeting HERE.

State Historian Rob Martínez explores how viruses and disease shaped New Mexico history. Since the dawn of time, humans have had to face adversity to survive.Viruses and disease are, sadly, part of that history and integral to the human experience. Pandemics and epidemics are part of the historical landscape.As early as the ancient Greeks, a fever killed most of Athens; the plague of the 1300s killed off one third of the European population; and in 1918 the world was in the grip of Spanish Flu. New Mexico was not immune to such outbreaks. State Historian Rob Martínez takes a look at how epidemics and pandemics impacted New Mexico through the centuries.

¡Iluminarte!

December 6

Time and details TBA

¡ILUMINARTE! is a winter holiday celebration inspired by luminarias and farolitos—a New Mexico tradition.  In 2019, this Sunday evening event included an illuminated bike parade along the Paseo del Bosque Trail led by Story Riders–a bilingual, after-school, bike-riding program for elementary school students—along with performances by Circo Latino and AirDance New Mexico at the NHCC and “River of Lights” at the Botanical Gardens. The evening concluded with readings by Albuquerque Poet Laureate Michelle Otero with students from three elementary schools at Tingley Beach, along the Rio Grande. Stay tuned for 2020 events, which may be virtual. ¡ILUMINARTE! is a collaboration between the NHCC, the City of Albuquerque, Story Riders, AirDance New Mexico, and the Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program.

Tertulia Histórica Albuquerque: Illuminating New Mexico: A History of Luminarias and Farolitos

December 19

2 pm (MST)
Live via Zoom

Register in advance for this meeting HERE.

State Historian Rob Martínez examines the fascinating origins of these uniquely New Mexican cultural expressions. Before there was a Christmas tree, mistletoe, egg nog or Santa Claus, there were luminarias and farolitos lighting the dark paths for ancient New Mexicans, commemorating that long ago tradition of High Mass at midnight. Like most New Mexican traditions, these lights, like Las Posadas, reach back deep into a rich Catholic tradition that is a blend of Spanish, Puebloan, Mexican, and American influences that are still vibrant today. Add the contributions of Asians from places like China and you have a very unique New Mexico religious expression that illuminates New Mexico like no other tradition. State Historian Rob Martínez takes us on a journey to discover where these sacred lights came from.
