Sunday, April 28, 2 p.m.   A fascinating presentation by Marlon Magdalena (Jemez):
Everything You Need to Know about Pueblo Culture (but were afraid to ask)
Time and Place: 2 p.m. ate Martha Liebert Public LIbrary - 124 Calle Caliche, Bernalillo, NM (The libary is behind the Town Hall at 829 Camino del Pueblo)

New Mexico’s Native American pueblos’ rich cultural heritage dates back thousands of years and has survived to the present. Their languages, music, oral history, and Feast Days are still practiced and celebrated.


Some Feast Days are open to the public and, if attending, it helps to understand why these events occur and continue to be an important part of Pueblo lives. This talk, using artifacts and replicas, will explain their usage and meaning in Pueblo culture with a particular emphasis on the people of Jemez Pueblo.

Our speaker, Marlon Magdalena, has been a ranger at theJemez Historic Site s

since 2005 and is currently its Instructional Coordinator Supervisor. In addition,

he is also a practicing musician who has appeared in the United Arab Emirates,

ABQ Old Town, Cortez, Colorado as well as participating in the choir for

Jemez Feast Days and occasionally composing songs for the dances there.

He proudly participates in all aspects of Jemez life and will share

his experiences in his presentation.


Masks are discretionary, refreshments will be served.
There is an elevator to the event meeting room located on the 2nd floor.
