My journey with Nanao Sakaki

Gallery talk by John Brandi

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

John Brandi shares the history of his friendship with Japanese poet Nanao Sakaki. Good friends with Gary Snyder and Allen Ginsberg, Sakaki was encouraged by them to travel to the US, and in 1971 he was drawn to northern New Mexico where he ended up living in a school bus below Taos Mountain. Sakaki’s poetry is marked by humor and appreciation for a simple lifestyle, the embodiment of unconventional wisdom and spirited non-conformism. Brandi, founder of Tooth of Time Books, published Sakaki’s first major collection poetry, "Real Play" and will speak about Sakaki’s poetry and role as a countercultural literary icon. 

Free with admission.

Turn On, Tune In – A Digital Story Telling Workshop
New Mexico History Museum
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Inspired by the iconic 1966 Timothy Leary counterculture motto: Turn on, tune in, drop out, the New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors is sponsoring a series of unique storytelling workshops in concert with the museum’s Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest exhibition (open through February 11, 2018). To further glean the impact of this era, ten residents from each of the five New Mexico communities listed below will be selected to participate in a workshop to craft and present personal stories for their community.

The program is designed to be in collaboration with local libraries, museums, universities, community groups, and radio broadcasters. Workshops will start with a Friday evening presentation followed by a two-day session on Saturday and Sunday. The outgrowth will be community events featuring the stories, local music, a potluck, either a live or produced radio broadcast and will have an on-line presence.

Counterculture: the Rise of Permaculture
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Gallery talk with Roxanne Swentzell

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Roxanne Swentzell is a member of the Naranjo family from the Santa Clara Pueblo of northern New Mexico. An internationally celebrated clay artist, Swentzell is also a pioneer in the permaculture movement intent on training younger Native Americans in Santa Clara and beyond to build hornos (adobe ovens), preserve seeds, select and cook native foods, and preserve the cultural attitudes that have sustained her people for millennia. She has been an activist on behalf of native cultural justice and is in the vanguard of today’s counterculture movement.

Free with admission.

Las Posadas
New Mexico History Museum
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

The annual candle-lit procession of Las Posadas travels around the Santa Fe Plaza and concludes in the Palace Courtyard. This version of an old Hispanic tradition recreates Mary and Joseph’s search for a place to give birth to the Baby Jesus—and throws in a few devils for good measure. Stay for carols, cookies and hot cider in the Palace Courtyard. Free.

The History Museum and Palace will close at 3 p.m. to prepare for this event.

Gallery talk with Enrique Lamadrid

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Enrique R. Lamadrid is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Spanish at the University of New Mexico. He has dedicated his career to studying, publishing about, and teaching on traditional Hispanic culture, folklore, music, and literature. Lamadrid will speak about a group of Chicano intellectuals including Tomás Atencio, E. A. "Tony" Mares, Juan Estevan Arellano, and Cipriano Vigil who founded La Academia de la Nueva Raza (the Academy of the new people). The group aimed to rejuvenate Hispanic culture within a context of homeland. Centered in Dixon, New Mexico, La Academia joined intellectuals, writers, and musicians, and helped situate Hispano heritage and traditions within the context of counterculture by encouraging communities to reengage with their history.

Free with admission.
