Humans of New Mexico is a not-for-profit project which highlights individuals in the state and shows the diversity of the population. It is a community-wide effort to capture the complex issues that affect our communities and offer a platform to voice everyday practices of resistance to societal pressures. We recognize that New Mexico has diverse cultural traditions; therefore, we are interested in capturing snippets of communities that have been here for generations as well as new populations contributing to our state. Agency through testimonio practice is at the heart of this project. We strive to privilege oral and language traditions by incorporating each storyteller’s native textual language as much as possible.
The site serves as an online archival interactive project which prioritizes textual and audio testimonial components along with photographs. We invite our viewers to engage in critical testimonial practice by engaging with textual, audio and visual analysis of the diverse communities whose stories we share.
