November is Native American Month and NM PBS will be airing the documentary “A Thousand Voices.” This is the story of Native American women in New Mexico, from the creation stories of the beginning of time, through the invasions from Spain, Mexico, and United States. The power remains and the story continues.
From the proverb, “It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story,” this documentary builds from thousands of voices to present one universal story of New Mexico’s Native American women. Native American women have been purveyors of culture since creation. In spite of Western invasions, Native American women remain strong and grounded in traditional values by enduring courage and wisdom.
