Please join us as the CSU English department hosts sculptor, writer, and producer Nora Naranjo Morse on September 26-27, 2016. During her visit, Morse will be focusing on Numbe Whageh. Morse explains: “Numbe Whageh is a part of the Cuerto Centenario project in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The word, Numbe Whageh, is taken from the Tewa Pueblo language and means ‘the center place.’ Numbe Whageh was Albuquerque’s first land art piece. This controversial project focuses on the historical treatment of Pueblo people by Spanish conquistador Don Juan de Onate during the late 1500s. Among other subjects, this project looks at issues of monuments, who makes them and why. History retold by indigenous peoples is at the center of this project, and I will focus on how this was accepted by non-natives and institutions.”
This is an important educational opportunity for students, faculty, and staff across disciplines to engage with a Visiting Phi Beta Kappa Scholar. All of the events are FREE, thank you to the sponsorship of the CSU English Department and Phi Beta Kappa, with special thanks to Gloria Blumanhourst, our CSU PBK contact.
