AnaMaria Moreno-Molinar stepped into the role of instructional coordinator at the Bosque Redondo Memorial at Fort Sumner Historic Site on Oct. 1.

According to the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, in the Historic Sites system, instructional coordinators play a pivotal role in connecting the public with the sites’ history and resources.

They develop special events and public programming, coordinate on- and off-site educational resources, and help guide engagement and interpretation.

“At Bosque Redondo Memorial, I will have the opportunity to connect with people exactly where they’re at,” Moreno-Molinar said.

Moreno-Molinar brings a wealth of joy, cultural and artistic knowledge and passion to the role.

She grew up on a farm in Corrales, where her Basque/New Mexican heritage has instilled a love for the land and its people. While dancing with the Paris Opera Ballet and flying with the airlines, she traveled and studied different cultures.

“I want to be a witness and partner to the future healing and growth that is happening all around this powerful site,” she says. “New Mexico’s state motto, ‘Crecit eundo’ (‘It grows as it goes’), is the perfect template for growth, and with an incredibly talented team at the memorial, I know that I am home once again.”
