Acequias Historic Water Delivery Systems and Cultural Heritage of New Mexico.
Acequias have been and still are a part of the history and cultural heritage of New Mexico. The maintenance of the acequias and participation of the "parciantes" require some amount of dedication to continue the tradition of continual use. Hundreds of parciantes may be involved that go back generations in the communities. This lecture will discuss the connection of the community to the acequia system and how archaeology records acequias for the archaeological record.
