A Tour of SITElines 2018 in 24 Photos

One of the guiding narratives of the exhibition is that of a monument to Juan de Oñate, the first governor of New Mexico, who is revered by some—and who is known to others as the official who ordered the amputation of the right foot of every Acoma Pueblo man over the age of 25, as well as those of other men in surrounding Pueblo communities, in 1599. In 1997, two anonymous people cut off the right foot of the recently erected Oñate statue, about 40 minutes north of Santa Fe, citing solidarity with the conquistador’s victims.
