Giving Tuesday is totally appropriate in 2020 where we are doing so much online, anyway. I support the efforts of the Friends to continue supporting the all important services of the Santa Fe Public Library. Here's a shout-out to the Board of Directors for working year round to raise funds, so we can provide help to the Library in 2021. Another shout-out to all our members for continuing to donate funds showing how much you care for essential library services! Not too late to join in on Giving Tuesday. Whatever you can afford will be much appreciated.
Good afternoon, I am reaching out to our communities to remind people to complete the #2020Census questionnaire, especially if they have received their Census ID. Every person counted brings in necessary funding into our state for so many programs such as our Fire Departments, Hospitals/Clinics, Schools, Libraries and such more. You can complete it online at 2020census.gov or by phone or mail. #WeAllCount
Nothing is more American than #NationalApplePieDay and also the #2020Census. Make sure your community is counted so you can benefit from billions of dollars in federal funding. All responses are confidential, and by law, cannot be shared with federal law enforcement agencies like the FBI, ICE, or even the local police. Respond today at 2020census.gov so you can be counted, regardless of your place of origin or immigration status. Census forms are available in multiple languages. #ShapeYourFuture

The French in New Mexico: Four centuries of exploration, adventure & influence
Author Event with François-Marie Patorni

Thursday, January 14th, 2021
5:00 p.m. MST

Register to attend here https://tinyurl.com/FrenchNM

In this first history of the French in New Mexico, the author chronicles the lives of French-speaking people who came mainly from France, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Africa, and the Caribbean Islands; of people with French ancestry who retained some of their French culture; and of people with strong connections to France. The book traces their presence in New Mexico from the 1500s to present times. It tells the stories of influential, unusual, or colorful characters, and of people who are not as well remembered. They came from all walks of life, explorers, adventurers, fur trappers and traders, soldiers, merchants, priests, farmers and ranchers, businesspeople, scientists, artists, actors, politicians, lawyers, criminals, women of note, intellectuals, and other influencers in society. Whether dramatic or lighthearted, their lives are filled with stories of love and death, of chases and hunts, of successes and failures. As they roamed across the land, they will occasionally take us to California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Texas, and Mexico. These stories are placed in their historical and cultural context, and point to more detailed readings and further research. What is now New Mexico was for centuries at the limit of the world known to Europeans. This is still the case as far as French history is concerned. This book is offered as a contribution to the cultural resurrection of the French in New Mexico. It is for the thousands of New Mexicans who share a French ancestry, conscious and proud of the value of French culture, heritage, and identity. It is also for their distant cousins who remained in their original lands. And beyond direct family ties, it is for all those interested in the multicultural aspects of New Mexico’s history and society.

About the Author
François-Marie Patorni, a French American, is an independent scholar specializing in the history of the French-speaking people in New Mexico and the American Southwest.

Patorni was born and grew-up in Paris. After post-graduate studies in France, he spent two years as a volunteer in Chad, and some more time in Togo, Benin, and Algeria. Later, he tried the American experience, earning an MBA from the Wharton School in Philadelphia in 1972. On campus, he got involved in the Nixon-McGovern Presidential campaign, quite a ride for a Frenchman! He then had a career at the World Bank in Washington D.C., including multi-years postings in India and Senegal, and frequent travel to Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia.

Patorni moved to New Mexico in 2004. He realized the extraordinarily rich history of the French, French Canadians, and other French-speaking people, and embarked on his great chase for the French in New Mexico. He also was been an environmental advocate in New Mexico, including being president of the Santa Fe Watershed Association for 7 years.

What's My Legacy? Chicana/o Literature and Culture in the American Southwest

Dr. Vanessa Fonseca-Chávez invites everyone to ponder individual and collective legacies as she discusses her recently published book Colonial Legacies in Chicana/o Literature and Culture: Looking through the Kaleidoscope. The Southwest U.S. is a region that has been colonized by Spain and the United States and we are often left to think about the kind of legacies these colonial periods have left behind. This book challenges readers to reflect on the fragmented and peripheral narratives of colonial legacies that offer more complex understandings of individual and collective subjectivities.

TRIBUTES TO AUTHOR RUDOLFO ANAYA AND LINKS TO HIS ARCHIVES AT THE UNM CENTER FOR SOUTHWEST RESEARCH https://anaya.unm.edu
Because of Rudolfo Anaya’s literary and cultural significance to New Mexico and to honor his legacy, UNM Libraries’ Department of Digital Initiative and Scholarly Resources (DISC) created the Rudolfo Anaya Digital Archive, a comprehensive online guide to his life and work. Oral histories, draft manuscripts, book covers, and an extensive bibliography of Anaya resources are available in the online archive. CSWR staff, and indeed, the entire UNM Libraries community is deeply saddened by Mr. Anaya’s death, one of New Mexico’s great writers and cultural icons. While his passing is a great loss, by placing his papers with CSWR he left an incredible gift to New Mexico. His work will be treasured and preserved in perpetuity in the Center for Southwest Research and Special Collections for future generations to enjoy. For detailed descriptions of the material in the Rudolfo A. Anaya Papers please see the CSWR finding aid at https://rmoa.unm.edu/docviewer.php?docId=nmu1mss321bc.xml#crit
