Carrie Leven – Kiowa Trail

In this segment of the Voices de Aquí series, we hear about the Kiowa Trail from Carrie Leven, resident of Questa for over 25 years, acequia parsiante, and archaeologist for Carson National Forest Questa Ranger District.

Thank you Carrie Leven, for sharing your research on the Kiowa Trail. Your knowledge of the layered and complex cultural and material history and prehistory of this area is a gift and adds to our understanding and appreciation of the heritage of this place. Read Carrie’s essay on the Kiowa Trail at the Questa History Trail website HERE.

This segment is an edited excerpt from a longer Questa Stories interview with Carrie Leven from April 20, 2018. Listen to the full interview HERE.

This summer, we’re listening together to the voices of our neighbors; every week we share a different short story from our community with Voices de Aquí. Join us for the short broadcasts at Questa Farmers Market on Sundays or here, on our website.

Huge thanks to our collaborators at Questa Farmers Market, Gaea McGahee and all the musicians at the market for allowing us to plug into their sound system to broadcast the Voices de Aquí weekly segments.

We are also grateful to our funders! Voices de Aquí is made possible by support from the LANL Foundation Community Outreach Grant, Chevron Grants for Good and Taos Community Foundation IMPACT Grant.
