The Art of Mayordomia

In 2008, the New Mexico Acequia Association (NMAA) partnered with the University of New Mexico to establish the Mayordomo Project. Through this effort, the NMAA has established a mentorship program that fosters the transmission of local knowledge to the next generation of mayordomos. NMAA has developed educational materials including “The Art of Mayordomía,”a short film. The Art of Mayordomia can be viewed in the clip below. Note: Your browser needs flash to view the video.
