The Line: Protests Over The Entrada

NMiF: Santa Fe Entrada protests

September 8, 2017 – Protests are expected this week at the Entrada in Santa Fe. The “Entrada de Don Diego de Vargas,” held during the Santa Fe Fiesta every September, is a re-enactment of the return of Spanish colonists to Santa Fe following a Pueblo Indian revolt. Critics say it whitewashes the mistreatment of Native Americans; supporters call it a celebration of two cultures agreeing to peacefully live together. Gene Grant and the Line panelists, taping the segment the day before this year’s Entrada, talk about circumstances leading up to what has become yearly protests.

Line Panelists:
Lonna Atkeson, UNM Political Science Department
Serge Martinez, professor, UNM School of Law
Julie Ann Grimm, editor, Santa Fe Reporter
Laura Sanchez-Rivét, attorney at Cuddy and McCarthy, LLP

OUR LAND: Pueblo of Santa Ana Works To Restore Habitat & Bring Back Wildlife

NMiF: Our Land logo (Santa Ana)

September 8, 2017 – This month Our Land highlights wildlife and habitat restoration on Santa Ana Pueblo. Already, the tribe had undertaken riparian restoration along the Rio Grande and Jemez River and reintroduced species that are culturally significant. They're also studying predators like bears and cougars and expanding habitat restoration projects to new areas. Correspondent Laura Paskus looks at the significance of these efforts for both tribal members and surrounding communities and ecosystems.
