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

    I was at the Santa Fe Plaza today protesting the Entrada with Native Americans and other Caucasians. We tried to disrupt the program peacefully.

    Glad I was there to voice my support of the Native American people.
