Story of Abiquiú The People View of Abiquiú Interviews

We would like to express our gratitude for the wonderful experience that we received working on this project with the Office of the State Historian in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Working along side with the State Historian, Estevan Raél Galvez, and the Assistant State Historian, Dennis Trujillo, our eyes and our hearts were opened to the amazing people and places of enchanting New Mexico. Along the journey of our research, we encountered some contacts that were very helpful in our quest to understand the different views of our state history. We extend many thanks to the ones from Abiquiú who participated in our interviews and our inquiring of the past. There are five people in particular that we want to thank; Isabel Trujillo, Virgil Trujillo, David Lopez, Malcolm Ebright, and Mr. Ramon Dominguéz. Thank you for sharing. Finally, we would like to thank a fellow student, Mary Louise Sena, who gladly donated her time and her beautiful voice for the audio in this exhibit.
