Calabasa, maiz, y alberjon

Episode 29 of ¡Que Vivan las Acequias! – produced by Miguel Santistevan of the NMAA in collaboration with Cultural Energy (www.culturalenergy.org). Made possible with a grant from the Panta Rhea Foundation.

This show features a presentation by Dr. Richard Ford at our 3rd Annual Tierra, Agua, y Cultura conference held on March 8, 2008 in Española, New Mexico. This presentation covers the interactions of the various cultures in northern New Mexico with regard to land, water, and seeds that has resulted in the food and agricultural patterns we see in the region today.

Special thanks to Cipriano Vigil for our theme music and Los Viejitos for this month’s musical selection.
