La Niña: A special presentation – Niña Otero-Warren

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This is a free dramatization program. Open to the public.

The Neighborhood in Rio Rancho, Loma Colorado Boulevard Northeast, Rio Rancho, NM.

Born into the families Luna and Otero, Niña moved to Santa Fe as a teenager. La Nina was superintendent of schools. She was also an organizer of Santa Fe Fiesta, Indian Market, and Spanish Colonial Arts. She worked to get New Mexico women the right to vote, then ran for U.S. Congress in 1922.

Meet her in 1951 for her 70th birthday as she reminisces, confides, answers and disclaims — and even tells some stories from her book, “Old Spain in our Southwest.”

Deborah Blanche – actor, writer and storyteller – will present the story of Nina Otero-Warren.  She has been creating Chautauqua style dramatization programs for NMHC since 1985. Deb has toured coast-to-coast with her ever-expanding repertoire of Western women.

Our thanks to the New Mexico Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for the funding of this program.
