Last April, Iren Schio and David Fant - friends of our film who felt so inspired by the Rio Puerco and Nasario's stories - led the students of Santa Fe's Little Earth School in art and song projects!
Iren helped the students create dioramas from word images (by Nasario ) - using soil, rocks and plant fragments from the Río Puerco Valley and incorporating drawings, paintings and clay to make his memories come alive through each creation .
Dave (aka Cowboy Blue) created a song inspired by Nasario - he and the children performed it for Nasario. Olé.
These are the kinds of beautiful evocative arts and humanities interplay that we hope to encourage and inspire in more workshops, more gatherings, to bring out what happens when you encounter the stories that speak or sing to you!
A big THANKS to Iren, David, and the Little Earth School students and teachers and principal, Ellen Souberman
