New Buffalo and Beyond
Gallery talk with Iris Keltz
Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.
Iris Keltz, author of Scrapbook of a Taos Hippie, shares stories of living at New Buffalo and in the Taos area during the countercultural era.
“The whole name of New Buffalo means the buffalo sustained the Indians for many years and this is New Buffalo. We were going to be sustained by the earth. So, I think of all the communes New Buffalo was more interested in learning how to grow food and getting back to the land.” – Iris Keltz
