Malcolm Ebright

University of New Mexico Press


430 pages




Often the winners in struggles over precious land and water in New Mexico was the party with the better advocate, says historian and lawyer Ebright, and those are the people he profiles here within the milieu of Hispanos, Indians, and Genizaros (Hispanized nomadic Indians). His topics include a city different than we thought: land grants in early Santa Fe, the Chochiti Pueblo pasture grant and the Ojo del Espiritu Santo Grant, La Cienega and Cieneguilla, Tom[sz]s Velez Cachupin and his land grants, the vision of governor Velez Cachupin, and the return of Zuni Pueblo's sacred lands and artifacts.
