John S. Calhoun:
Indian Agent, First Territorial Governor
Before he became N. M’s first territorial governor, John Calhoun came to New Mexico as its first Indian agent where he became acquainted with old civilizations and conflicts. Hispanic ranchers and Pueblo Indians were at the mercy of Navajo raiders who had their own grievances. Washington was ignorant of the territory so Calhoun was on his own.
