Santa Fe - Palace of the Governors

Santa Fe's Historic Palace of the Governors
--- Dating to the late 1600s, The Palace of the Governors served as the administrative seat of Spain's territory in what is today the American Southwest and is designated as both a National Historic Landmark and and American Treasure.  It is part of a campus devoted to New Mexican history.  Among other opportunities for learning and interacting with the local history and culture here in Santa Fe, students of History on the Move V will want to pay special attention to the group of Native American artisans who sell authentic crafts and jewelry under the portico of the Palace of the Governors.  The people selling their handmade arts are members of regional Indian tribes and the authenticity of their productions is legendary.  Also, the new New Mexico History Museum offers state of the art interpretive tools and techniques to teach the complicated history of New Mexico through time.
