SMU-IN-TAOS Special Talk

  • 09 Aug 2010
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • SMU-in-Taos Campus, Hwy 518

All Taos Archaeologicial Society and Taos Historical Society members (and any other interested folks) are invited to a special talk by Dr. John Kessel, Professor Emeritus of History, University of New Mexico on Monday, August 9 at 2 p.m. in the Fort dining hall.
His lecture, entitled "A Long Time Coming: the 17th-Century Pueblo-Spanish War," focuses on tensions between Native peoples and Spanish colonials in the New Mexico of the 1600s, culminating in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. A renowned historian, Professor Kessel is a lively speaker whose thoughts on this key event in New Mexico's history are bound to interest and intrigue listeners.
This is a lecture that is being presented to a NM History course being taught by Peter and Susan Bakewell (see contact information below) but both Peter and Susan felt that it would be great to open the talk up to interested individuals in Taos.  Hence my reaching out to the archaeological and historical societies.

Please do pass this information on to the memberships of both societies, and any others who you might think would be interested.

Thanks!  Mike Alder, Executive Director, SMU-in-Taos
