Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records consist of film, video, and audio elements which document the production of several documentary films that supplemented the National Museum of American History exhibition, "American Encounters." "American Encounters" is a permanent exhibition commemorating the Columbus Quincentenary that chronicles the experiences, struggles, compromises, and eventual coexistence among American Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo-American people in the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico that began in 1539 with the arrival of Spanish soldiers and missionaries. Smithsonian Productions created five short, complementary video programs in 1992 entitled, "Pueblo Resistance" (14:14); "Many Voices" (9:29); "Hispanic Resistance" (11:20); "Matachinas Spanish: Bernalillo" (8:19); and "Matachinas Indian: San Juan" (8:01). Productions staff created three additional 20 minute videos in 1994 entitled, "Only Death Will Take Me From This Place," a look at village life in northern New Mexico; "Spreading Beauty Wherever I Go," on the lowrider cars of New Mexico; and "Corn Is Who We Are," dealing with Pueblo Indian food. Some copies of some programs are available in the Reference Library.
