ETHNOHISTORIC AND ETHNOGRAPHIC STUDY OF EL CAMINO REAL DE TIERRA ADENTRO NHT ALONG U.S.- MEXICAN BORDER
PI: Jeffrey Shepherd
Sponsor: NATIONAL PARK SERVICE
History
Amount awarded: $74,000

The focus of the study will be to document the stories of knowledgeable people, particularly those of American Indians and potentially Mexican Indians, who still have historical ties to this portion of the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (ELCA) and to the physical character and features of the landscape and buildings, as originally and subsequently developed. The project will involve a series of oral history interviews, as well as historical archival research, to assess the cultural history of the region associated with the Camino Real. Dr. Shepherd will collaborate with the National Park Service and Dr. Deni Seymour of Southwest Borderlands LLC, on this multi-year project.
