    Native Creative: Estevan Rael-Galvez and Maribel Alvarez

    Presented by Tucson Pima Arts Council at University of Arizona Poetry Center

    June 13, 2009

    The Tucson Pima Arts Council offers Tucson residents and visitors the rare opportunity to attend several free public arts performances and forums with prominent Native American artists.

    Estevan Rael-Galvez was raised herding sheep in northern New Mexico. Early on he developed passion for the words spoken by his elders as well as the strength of words on the page. He left his traditional roots and completed degrees at Berkeley and the University of Michigan. He’s received numerous fellowships for his studies on American Indian slavery. He was named the seventh state historian for New Mexico and will talk on “The Sovereignty of Context.”

    The University of Arizona’s Maribel Alvarez will join in this discussion. She holds dual appointments in the UA English Department and Southwest Center. As the UA’s Public Folklorist, she’s charged with interpreting the regional culture of Northern Mexico and the U.S. Southwest.
