THE CHIEF & THE GOVERNOR: Material Culture & Comanche/Spanish Diplomacy in Late 18th Century New Mexico

Influenced by changing geopolitical dynamics in the region, the peace treaty accorded in Santa Fe by the Spanish and Eastern Comanche in 1786 culminated more than two decades of violent confrontation between the two groups. Objects from this period associated with both cultures illustrate how these transformations affected the way the two populations reimagined their social and political relationship.
