Discussion Leader, Valerie Mendoza, American Studies instructor, University of Kansas

One hundred years after Columbus' arrival in the Caribbean, Spanish Conquistadors and Priests push into North America in search of gold and to spread Catholicism. See the film and participate in a scholar-led discussion that explores Coronado's expedition through the area of Dodge City.

This event is part of "Latino Americans: 500 Years of History," public programs that explore the story of the "Mexican Village," a temporary community of railroad workers recruited to Dodge City in the early 20th Century. The program is supported by the Kansas Humanities Council, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Library Association.
