Culture Series: The Churro and the Navajo
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
This month's Culture Series, presented by photographer Stacia Spragg-Braude, is titled "The Churro and the Navajo: One Family’s Journey to Save the Sacred Sheep."
The free presentation features photographs and anecdotes documenting one Navajo family’s journey to help save the Churro sheep, and in the process, save the family and the Navajo culture. Navajo-Churro sheep have been an important part of the Museum’s livestock collection since it opened 20 years ago.
A former staff photographer for the Albuquerque Tribune who lives in Corrales, her book, “To Walk in Beauty: A Navajo Family’s Journey Home,” was published in 2009 by the University of New Mexico Press. The award-winning photojournalist has covered projects in the Balkans, Cuba and Uganda.
