Andrés Armijo

"Por Constancia/So that it may be validated: Family History in the Río Abajo (LPD Press / Río Grande Books, 2014)

Andrés Armijo will provide an overview of the content of the book illustrating that the combination of primary source documents, oral history and imagery all contribute to the history of the Río Abajo.

"People's history" is often not considered important and it is unjustly overlooked for the famous characters of New Mexican history. In this presentation, Armijo will reveal unique genealogical and cultural contributions by everyday Nuevo Mexicanos who lived in the Río Abajo throughout the 19th century and early 20th century, and how they validated their own history and legacy.

Andrés Armijo is from Valencia, New Mexico, born to Rosemary Gallegos and Vincent C. Armijo, Jr. at 12:00 p.m. on August 12, 1970. At the time of his birth, the doctors exclaimed, "High Noon Armijo is born!" He holds a Master's degree in Spanish with a concentration in Southwest Hispanic Studies, and began his career at the University of New Mexico teaching in the Sabine R. Ulibarrí Spanish as a Heritage Language Program. Andrés studied and performed flamenco dance for 12 years. He is a short-subject/documentary filmmaker having shown his films with the New Mexico Film Office Showcase and at the Santa Fe Film Festival. Between 1999-2003, Andrés raised $30,000 to endow a memorial scholarship in honor of his sister Pearl Louise Armijo for the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico. He is the award-winning author of Becoming a Part of My History: Through Images & Stories of My Ancestors (Río Grande Books, 2010). Andrés has dedicated a great deal of his life to the study, research, and recovery of his genealogy and family history in the Río Abajo region of New Mexico.

This program is free and open to the public.
