Dianne Layden, PhD The History of Juan de Oñate, conquistador


Dianne will talk about Onate, what happened at Acoma Pueblo and its consequences, the three statues of Oñate in Alcalde (near Espanola), Albuquerque, and El Paso, what happened to the statues in June 2020 (two statues are in storage), and the September 2023 shooting in Espanola where Rio Arriba County considered reinstalling the Alcalde statue. There will be handouts with pictures of the three statues.
