In July of 2019, OSFA held a special event presenting and honoring Enrique Lamadrid, professor emeritus of Spanish and Portuguese history at the University of New Mexico. The occasion celebrated the forthcoming publication of "Nacion Genizara", which Prof. Lamadrid co-edited with Moises Gonzalez. This timely book updates our knowledge of history in New Mexico by exploring the expanding body of work by local Hispanic researchers who have been studying the unique culture and make-up of the "Genizaro" population of Northern New Mexico. Recent study attempts to bring our understanding of a truly unique swatch of our cultural fabric out of the realm of mythology into our current, accepted interpretation of New Mexico history.
