Description

Free admission and programming at Casa San Ysidro from 1 - 4 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month. Visitors are invited to take self-paced tours of this historic property.

Acoma: Pueblo in the Sky, by Dr. Ward Alan Minge is the only official history of Sky City sanctioned by the tribal council. In the revised addition of Minge’s book, Simon Ortiz award-winning Acoma poet, provides the foreword. Inspired by this connection, our event will feature The New Mexico Poetry Society, Albuquerque Poet Laureate Manuel Gonzalez, and daughter Sarita, who will discuss the importance of Simon Ortiz’s work on Native American literature, share and create their own poems and foster a sense of pride for the cultural landscape of New Mexico and the generational inspiration people have when visiting Casa San Ysidro.
