PAJARITO LANDMARKS PROJECT
Honor Community Knowledge!
The Pajarito Landmarks project seeks to increase community accessibility, connectivity, safety, and visibility to acequias in the Pajarito Community of Albuquerque. Throughout the project, CESOSS’ Cultivando Nuestro Futuro Leadership Institute will work closely with the Pajarito community to create five interactive signs along the Pajarito acequia. Each sign will have a specific focus in which community members’ knowledge will be honored.
Expose Our Youth to Acequia Education
Enhance Outdoor Community Space in the Pajarito Community
Provide the Community with Culturally Accessible Acequia Education
Foster a Relationship Between Nature & Community in the Pajarito Community
The protection of acequias entails the protection of the trails along the acequias. Through the Pajarito Landmarks Project, Pajarito residents will have a space where they can gather, reflect, and develop a strong sense of place, querencia.
