He’s also had a love for history and learning about different cultures.

It’s a perfect fit that Tackes is the new interpretive ranger at Los Luceros Historic Site.

“I am extremely appreciative to have been given this opportunity to work at Los Luceros,” Tackes says. “I am excited to share my enthusiasm for the site’s history and start this new chapter with NMHS (New Mexico Historic Sites). Along the way, I hope to connect with visitors and the local community to really showcase what Los Luceros Historic Site has to offer.”

Interpretive rangers are responsible for interpreting the history and culture of the sites through public programming and direct engagement.

“I am so thrilled to have Joseph as part of our team at Los Luceros Historic Site,” said Carly Stewart, the site manager for LLHS. “Joseph brings his teaching experience, fluency in Spanish, creative mind and positive energy to the team which we are all so thankful for. I can’t wait to see what fantastic programs he comes up with!”

Tackes was born in Illinois and received a bachelor’s degree in area studies geography, and Spanish language and literature from Northern Illinois University in 2015.

In the time since, he has spent most of his time abroad. Over the past six years, Tackes worked as an English as a second language instructor in Spain, Costa Rica, Honduras and Peru.

Joseph Tackes started in the role on Nov. 26, 2022.
