The Following the Manito Trail cultural heritage exhibit, gallery guide, and Humanities Discussion Series shared the stories of migrant Manitos (Hispanic New Mexicans) to create public dialogue about their legacies to the area and their migration patterns. Through interviews, poetry, stories, photographs, and cultural arts, the Millicent Rogers Museum highlighted Manito contributions in the exhibit at the Millicent Rogers Museum and two additional venues in northern New Mexico. The dynamics of Manito identity and community in New Mexico and the American West continue to be influenced by the ways Manito families carried their culture to diasporas—their new homes—while continuing to impact northern New Mexico.
