Land, Water, and Culture: New Perspectives on Hispanic Land Grants
Charles L. Briggs, John R. Van Ness
University of New Mexico, 1987 - Business & Economics - 422 pages
After the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, many Hispanic and Pueblo Indian communities were stripped of their land base and water rights, leaving a legacy of bitterness and poverty. The essays in this third volume of the New Mexico Land Grant Series explore the social, ecological, political, and legal roots of land grants whose disposition is as crucial to the survival of these communities today as it has been during the past four centuries.
