New Mexico has a deep and rich history, dating back thousands of years. Through life in a place defined by arid landscapes and relative isolation, New Mexico’s peoples have developed a strong regional culture through recurring cycles of contact, violence, and accommodation. This CNM Multimedia Interactive Learning Experience (CNM MILE) provides a multifaceted look at New Mexico’s past through many different perspectives, including those of ethnicity, culture, gender, and class. The complexities of the state’s past suggest that there is no such thing as a single New Mexico History. Instead, this work invites readers to explore New Mexico’s varied—and often conflicting—histories.
