Exploring community resources

These community profiles explore the unique history and culture of six New Mexico communities. These communities were identified by the New Mexico History Resource Framework task force as representing the diverse cultures of New Mexico: Albuquerque’s Barelas neighborhood, Clovis, Dexter-Hagerman, Española, Gallup, and Silver City.

During the winter of 2004, task force members invited educators, community leaders, and local historians to participate in community dialogs in and about these six communities. Participants completed the Community Survey (pdf) form about community historical resources that, together with the dialogs, formed the basis for these profiles.

This is a first step in uncovering the wealth of resources and knowledge available through local traditions and in homes, historic sites, and organizations. Additional content from these communities will be used as basis for this framework and will serve as an integral part of the study of New Mexico history in the schools.
