Title: "Centering Truths, Not So Evident: Reimagining the Santa Fe Soldiers' Monument" by Estevan Rael-Gálvez

Issue: History News 2020 Volume 75, #4

Description: This article gives a brief history of the Santa Fe Soldiers’ Monument and offers suggestions for reinterpreting it. Dr. Rael-Gálvez’s insight into reimagining this monument offers inspiration for how communities grappling with harmful commemorative memorials that perpetuate and codify violence in historical memory can work to transform those sites into spaces of healing and reconciliation. Through reinterpretation and renewed installations, these communities can tell the stories of and memorialize those purposefully left out of the nation’s collective historical memory.
