Bridges and Fences: Events and Themes in American History and Culture

Activities including a curriculum kit on El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro national historic trail, public meetings to discuss the Navajo Nation’s Long Walk, and an exhibition on the impact of the Vietnam War in New Mexico.

The NMEH requests $38,710 in direct and $10,000 in challenge grant funds to support public humanities activities relating to the We the People initiative. The NMEH request represents collaborative efforts with four organizations seeking assistance for project activities that examine specific historic events that have shaped American history.These historical events are critical to understanding American history and policy as they relate to Latino/Hispanic settlement, resettlement of the indigenous population, development of the private press movement, and a public history of the Viet Nam War.
