Tempe History Society Lunch Talks

Building a Sense of Place in East Arizona By Dr. Vanessa Fonseca-Chávez

In the late 1800's many Hispanic families from the New Mexico Territory migrated to northeastern Arizona. They brought with them cultural practices and sheepherding traditions that helped to shape local economies and the way communities cultivated their sense of place. In this presentation, Vanessa Fonseca-Chávez will discuss the migration paths of Hispanic New Mexicans to the present-day towns of Concho and St. Johns, Arizona. She will share the stories and histories of this region and discuss its importance within Arizona history.
