Northern New Mexican and Southern Coloradan Spanish is a language of contact and colonization. It’s the dialect of settler colonization and its associated violence spanning Popé’s 1680 revolt and full-scale reversal of Spanish colonization in New Mexico to the 1967 raid of the Rio Arriba County Courthouse by Chicano activists. It is the language of Los Penitentes, the lay Catholic order renowned for their haunting alabados and denounced by Anglos for their “strange” and “unnatural” rituals. It is the language of a Spain now gone, as the Spanish-born priest at El Santuario de Chimayo claimed, “Here they speak the language of Cervantes!”
It is the language of my grandparents. It is a dialect I cannot grasp, not matter how hard I try. Nonetheless, I deeply appreciate the words, phrases, and wealth of stories they continue to pass on to each and every generation of our family.
