Martha Liebert Public Library Presents: Marlon Magdalena | Everything You Need to Know about Pueblo Feast Days

 

Some Pueblo Feast Days are open to the public and, if attending, it helps to understand why these events occur and continue to be an important part of Pueblo tradition. This talk, using artifacts and replicas, will explain their usage and meaning in Pueblo culture with a particular emphasis on the people of Jemez Pueblo.

Marlon Magdalena has been a ranger at the Jemez Historical Site since 2005 and is currently its Instructional Coordinator Supervisor. He is also a practicing musician who has performed in the United Arab Emirates, ABQ Old Town, Cortez, Colorado, as well as participating in the choir for Jemez Feast Days and occasionally composing songs for the dances there. He has given talks at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, Chaco Canyon, and numerous schools as well as conducting the Star Parties at Jemez Historic Site. He proudly participates in all aspects of Jemez life and will share his experiences in this presentation.
