Chamiza Foundation Invites Applications for Pueblo Indian Culture Preservation

Deadline: May 7, 2021
Established in 1989, the Chamiza Foundation works to ensure the continuity and living preservation of Pueblo Indian culture and traditions.
To advance this mission, the foundation welcomes applications in the following areas:
Traditional Project Funding — The foundation provides grant support for programs that directly relate to some aspect of the preservation and/or continuity of Pueblo culture and traditional lifeways. Awards range on average from between $3,000 and $12,000. Proposals are invited from New Mexico’s nineteen Pueblo Indian tribal communities; Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, El Paso, Texas, member of the All Pueblo Council of Governors and the 20th Pueblo; Pueblo community leaders; and non-Pueblo organizations that serve Pueblo communities (these entities must submit a letter of support from the governor of the pueblo as evidence that the community has requested their involvement). Funding priorities include language preservation and revitalization programs; traditional architecture and building; sustainable agriculture: traditional food ways and cooking practices; understanding of plants and their medicinal uses; traditional arts and crafts instruction: intergenerational programs; tribal and ancestral history; oral histories and storytelling; youth education and leadership: traditions and elements of ceremonial life; ecology and environmental stewardship; and innovative uses of technology. Special consideration is given to programs that include a language component and intercultural exchange and education.
COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding — Grants of between $3,000 and $12,000 will be awarded in support of relief efforts for Pueblo community relief efforts, including food, medical supplies and personal items; water; community relief and recovery needs; Internet access and connectivity; and other needs and expenses directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A wonderful day in Dulce at the Jicarilla Apache Nation with Axle and our new book and welcoming appreciative people and snow and rain and sun and clouds.

POETS!
Might you be the next City of Santa Fe: Poet Laureate?

The Santa Fe Arts Commission Poet Laureate program, established in 2005, strives to promote a meaningful poetic presence as part of the diverse cultural fabric of the city. This is an honorary position given to a person who has established a presence in the world of poetry, has demonstrated a commitment to and passion for poetry, and embraces the opportunity to engage in civic discourse.

The new Poet Laureate will succeed poet Elizabeth Jacobson, who has served from 2019-June 2021.

The Poet Laureate program is designed to enhance the presence of the literary arts in Santa Fe and create a focal point for the expression of Santa Fe’s culture through the literary arts. Objectives for the program also include raising awareness of the power of poetry and the spoken word, providing a forum for the cross pollination of art forms, and fostering the personal and professional growth of the Poet Laureate. Over time, the program will generate a body of work that commemorates the life of the city, the spirit of its people, and its special qualities. The honorary position is given to a person who has established a reputation in the world of poetry, demonstrated commitment and passion for poetry, and embraces the opportunity to engage in civic discourse. Duties are both ceremonial, through appearances at city events; and educational, through a community outreach project. This project must address a diverse audience with public readings, workshops, and the acceptance of invitations from schools and local organizations.

The Poet Laureate position will receive up to $5,000/year.Compensation for the public appearances will total up to $2,000/year. Compensation for the education project will be an amount up to $3,000/year

Deadline May 17

Tuesday, April 27th, 10 am -5pm

See Axle's daily location at www.axleart.com

In the thick of the pandemic shutdown, the state of New Mexico’s Department of Cultural Affairs, Santa Fe’s Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, and Axle Contemporary have joined together to produce a book for free distribution to all 600 schoolchildren in the Jicarilla Apache Schools. On Tuesday April 27, from 10am– 5pm, Axle Contemporary will be in Dulce, at the parking lot of the Wild Horse Casino, exhibiting some of the photos from the book on the exterior of the mobile artspace and distributing free books to families.

This pilot project is a response to last year's cancellation of art summer camps and activities at State Museums and the long shutdown of in-person learning at schools across the state. Bringing an in-person experience directly to our rural communities and distributing hands-on material promises to have a positive impact on schoolchildren in this time.

We've just installed the show, and now have 10 days to share it here, in Santa Fe. See daily location at www.axleart.com. This glimpse from the pages of the book shows ten pieces of traditional artwork from the Jicarilla Apache that are a part of the collection of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe.

The book, Traditional Art of the Jicarilla Apache, has been produced specifically to distribute in the Jicarilla Apache community.; It contains historical photos and writing from the recent MIAC exhibition Traditional Lifeways of the Southern Athabaskans, as well as images of Jicarilla artwork from the MIAC collection, selected by Axle's editor-curators Jerry Wellman and Matthew Chase-Daniel.

This exhibition is part of Axle Contemporary BROADSIDES series. Broadsides is a series of large-scale wheatpaste interventions on the exterior of the Axle Contemporary mobile artspace.

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is closed for a major renovation. Please make time to visit the updated space when they reopen on May 16th. www.miaclab.org
