Rebecca Orozco – “La Frontera: A History of the Borderlands in Cochise County”

  • Print

Our region has long been the focus of competing cultures: Native American, Spanish, Mexican and United States. Today’s border is just the latest in a series of boundaries that have divided the peoples who claimed the resources of the region. The history of the dividing line is one of conflict and violence, the legacy of which still affects us today. This program will look at the peoples who have occupied our borderlands through history and their creation of boundaries: cultural, linguistic and physical. Starting with prehistoric cultures whose remains give evidence of cultural borders, through the Europeans who sought to conquer the region for its rumored riches and many souls, to the harbingers of Manifest Destiny looking for land to live out an American dream, we will look at their relationship with land and to each other.
