Retracing New Mexicoĺs Ancestry: Los GenÝzaros with Ranger Joseph Tackes

At Los Luceros Historic Site
3/26/23, Sunday
1:00pm - 2:00pm

On Sunday, March 26, Ranger Joseph Tackes will be hosting a talk about the genízaros—a little-discussed story rooted in New Mexico’s history of indentured servitude. Ranger Joseph will shed light on the origins of the genízaros label used by the Spanish, why indentured servants were brought to New Mexico in the first place, the hardships they faced during colonial times, and the role that their descendants played in shaping the history and current state of New Mexico.
