Cultural Life of the Zuni Nation with Kenneth Seowtewa

In February 2014, Kenneth Seowtewa, cultural practitioner, artist in residence, author and visiting scholar at the University of Wisconsin, presented the ancestral and cultural values of the Zuni Nation. The attending patrons explored the world of the Zuni through the eyes of Mr. Seowtewa whose paternal and maternal ancestors held positions of authority through the centuries.  He also talked about the true story of the fabled “Seven Cities of Gold” that Coronado was searching for in 1540.

Program funded in part by StoryCorps, the New Mexico Humanities Council and the Department of Cultural Affairs.
