    “Youth on the Santa Fe Trail”

    Children of three primary cultures were involved with and affected by the Santa Fe Trail, 1821-1880.  Although Indigenous America, Hispano American, and Anglo American children and young adults lived on or traveled the trail of commerce and conquest, their stories are seldom heard.  Rendezvous 2022 explores how one culture sent their children east along the trail to learn a new culture; how westward expansion, encouraged by the trail, forced youth of another to deny their culture; and how youth who participated in the U.S. conquest found the trail a path to great adventure.

    Rendezvous 2022 is a three-day historical symposium with speakers and programs focusing on this year’s theme “Youth of the Santa Fe Trail.”

    Registration information will be released soon.
