What People are saying about this

Lois Rudnick

An impressive book. . . . Burke's most important contributions emerge from her study of the responses of Pueblos and Hispanos to the Anglo patronage that complexly supported, benefited, patronized, and undermined their communities, while exacerbating inter-ethnic tensions that were there long before their arrival. In addition, her fresh and exciting analysis of the divisions within the Santa Fe and Taos arts communities and the ways in which Pueblo Indians positioned themselves to speak on their own behalf is just terrific—very nuanced and very compelling. (Lois Rudnick, author of Mabel Dodge Luhan: New Woman, New Worlds)
