New from History Colorado Publications 

For generations, the spectacular San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico has nurtured unique cultural traditions.

Founded in 2000, Hilos Culturales shines a spotlight on the traditional arts of the Indio-Hispano communities of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. These cultural arts of the San Luis Valley have roots that span the history of the Americas and beyond, taking on their own local characteristics in every region.

Here for the first time are profiles of forty honorees of the Premio Hilos Culturales—the musicians, dancers, and other living treasures who embody and preserve the continued vitality of this cultural tapestry.

In an extensive introduction, Enrique Lamadrid highlights traditions from centuries past to the present day, all of them contributing to the music, dance, storytelling, literary heritage, and folklore of the Upper Río Grande region.
