Devoted to the Saints: New Mexico’s Santos

Before the first English colonists set sail for Jamestowne on 1607, Spanish settlers arrived in northern New Mexico bringing their heritage and culture to this new world — traditions that still exist today. Handed down through the generations, the religious art of Santeros is alive & well. Devoted to the Saints looks closely at the history, role & inspiration of the saints.
