This lecture looks at the life and times of 18th century Albuquerque. It covers the Spanish colonial period (1706 -1821) and provides a sense of how people - settlers, soldiers, servants, nomadic tribes, and others lived. It also examines the cross-cultural influences of the time that help define what it means to be a New Mexican today. A documentary will be shown that explores the historical roots of our mixed heritage, by conveying the lives of the common people behind the big names and events of New Mexico's Spanish colonial period.
