This week on New Mexico in Focus, we learn about the traditional foods of pueblo communities in New Mexico. Correspondent Megan Kamerick sits down with chef Lois Ellen Frank and Roxanne Swentzell, co-editor of “The Pueblo Food Experience Cookbook” to discuss food traditions and why some Native Americans are returning to the diets of their ancestors. And journalist Jeff Proctor from New Mexico in Depth’s Justice Project joins us to talk about his recent reporting with the Santa Fe New Mexican on how language and conflicts of interest can impact how cases against police officers are handled in the courts.
NMiF host Gene Grant and the Line panelists debate what should happen next as lawmakers grapple with a budget deficit of about $69 million for this year, and a revenue projection for next year that’s down by almost $300 million. The Line also takes on other important issues in the news.
