About Us
New Mexico History Web Project

If you are reading this, you have already begun to explore a major project initiated by our office - the New Mexico Digital History Project, a robust educational resource that both inspires and animates our mission. The goal of this project is to create a virtual engagement with New Mexico history, past and present. We invite visitors to navigate through themes that explore the wisdom of places, the significance of events, the complexity of the human condition and the transformative power of storytelling. The website showcases historical documents and brings visitors face to face with New Mexico's premier archival collections, video footage, oral histories and photographs. Each of the navigations incorporates essays and interpretive research that contextualizes these archival materials. The website also features a dialogue forum and an interactive calendar. The project is currently in Phase I, with an immediate focus on content development and design. Phase II will focus on education, where site content will be the basis of curriculum unit development for use in K-12 classrooms across the state.
