Following the Manito Trail

August 12 - November 18, 2017

Boyle Gallery

Following the Manito Trail is an interdisciplinary ethnographic project that documents Hispanic New Mexican, or Manito, migration from New Mexico to different parts of the United States during the last century.

Following the Manito Trail consists of a collection of oral histories, photographs, and artifacts that document, for the first time, the many contributions that Manito’s have had on the Western United States.

The Following the Manito Trail exhibition at the American Heritage Center focuses on Manitos migration into Wyoming. It looks at the many socio-cultural facets that have allowed Manito culture to endure beyond geographic restraints. The exhibit contextualizes the many aspects of Wyoming life and culture that Manitos have shaped, contributed to, and influenced.
