We Norteños here in northern New Mexico have a wonderful word: querencia, the place where we are at our best. A place from where we draw strength. A place where we know exactly who we are. For a lot of us it means home in the deepest sense of the word.
Because my family has been here for so many hundreds of years, the querencia I feel for the Taos Valley is intense. What’s happening in Taos now, left me with a sense of urgency to form La Coalición. I wanted to bring together like-minded newcomers, generational families, and native Taoseños to work together to preserve what’s here and to protect it.
