Tradiciones Leyendas - - TRADICIONES | TRADICIONES /LEYENDAS 2018 - Scott Gerdes spe­cial sec­tions edi­tor

This spe­cial pub­li­ca­tion con­tin­ues to be a recog­ni­tion and ova­tion of the rule­break­ers, tra­di­tion hold­ers and his­to­ry­mak­ers that have molded this spe­cial place in the San­gre de Cristo moun­tains. It is meant to pro­vide a look into some of the area’s fa­bled places, cus­toms, char­ac­ters, and en­vi­ron­men­tal and his­tor­i­cal move­ments.This is­sue of Leyendas (Le­gends) — the first in a four-part se­ries span­ning four con­sec­u­tive weeks — is fol­lowed by Raices (Roots), Artes (Arts) and cul­mi­nates with the Un­sung He­roes/Cit­i­zen(s) of the Year pub­li­ca­tion Oct. 11. Whether myth­i­cal or tan­gi­ble, proven true or still un­ver­i­fied, for­ever de­bated or writ­ten in stone, North­ern New Mex­ico’s leg­endary char­ac­ters and places never qui­etly fade away into the sun­set. Keep­ing our sto­ries alive is to know of our col­or­ful peo­ple, cap­ti­vat­ing cul­tural tra­di­tions, stun­ning nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and the com­mu­ni­ties that put us on the map for to­day and for gen­er­a­tions to come.
