New Mexico Highlands University (Las Vegas, NM 87701-4279)
Miriam Langer (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Manitos Community Memory Project Digital Archive

Three staff members, one postdoctoral associate, two interns, and one faculty member to develop a community archiving project in northeastern New Mexico. 

The Manitos Community Memory Project is the continuation of an ongoing initiative, disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, to create a digital archive of the at-risk living cultures of the Indo-Hispano region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado where natives often self-identify as Manitos and Manitas. Funding will allow New Mexico Highlands University to reassemble the team leading the initiative and to employ a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and two intern/trainees. Activities over the funding period will include: expanding and strengthening the network of Manito academic researchers and community partners; addressing technical and design issues with the Omeka S Digital Archive; providing training and technical assistance to community partners in transitioning from in-person to virtual memory gathering.
