The LA to Santa Fe Video Project

The LA to Santa Fe project is a product of the courage and vision of two innovative leaders – Tomasita Duran of the Ohkay Owingeh Housing Authority, and Rose Tourje of ANEW. Toma’s leadership is enabling her tribal community to live in the 21st century while maintaining their identity as indigenous people. Rose has led ANEW for 12 successful years, creatively strengthening communities and mitigating climate change. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the people of Ohkay Owingeh for this extraordinary collaboration, and the privilege provided ANEW to create this video as a document of our program.
