1919 New Mexico Mounted Police Raid on Santa Domingo Pueblo

The 1919 New Mexico Mounted Police Raid on Santa Domingo Pueblo
with Joe Sabatini

In October 2013, Mr. Sabatini, noted New Mexico Archivist, discussed the attempt
by state militiamen to seize cattle rustlers during the Christmas day dance
that almost resulted in the Santo Domingo Pueblo massacre.
The incident was a precursor of the united Pueblos’ struggle to defeat
the Bursum Bill and preserve their lands and way of life in the 1920s.
This program funded by StoryCorps.
