George McJunkin, a former slave turned cowboy, is a featured historical figure on the program.  He lived just down the road from the Morrow Ranch and his discovery became the most important archaeological find in North America.  Listen to his story here.

The New Mexico Centennial Foundation has organized a wealth of information, projects and activities to commemorate the occasion.

Here’s to you New Mexico.
