The purpose of the Cultural Heritage Videos project is to encourage youth to pursue and develop knowledge of their culture. These new found facts will be shared with the rest of the community via a series of videos produced by students at Espanola Valley High School. Each video features youth who are actively involved in some aspect of the Native American and Hispanic cultures of northern New Mexico.

“Eyes Wide Open” is an exhibition exposing the human cost of the Iraq war, featuring a pair of boots honoring each U.S. military fatality. Also included is a field of civilian shoes and a Wall of Remembrance to memorialize Iraqi civilians killed in the conflict. Created by the American Friends Service Committee in January 2004, “Eyes Wide Open” has been witnessed by over half a million Americans to date in over 80 locations all across the United States. Peter Doulton of Navato, CA received a Puffin grant to film, record, and preserve this exhibition which both honors our soldiers and bears witness to the belief that no war can justify its human cost.

Lilly Rivlin’s documentary film, “Can You Hear Me?" Israeli and Palestinian Women Fight For Peace” reveals the human and humane dimensions of the historic Mid-East conflict through the words, deeds and relationships of women peace activists on both sides. Though prospects for peace between Israelis and Palestinians have ebbed and flowed, women peace activists have worked consistently to bring an end to the bloodshed that has brought so much anguish to both sides. Lilly Rivlin received a Puffin grant to help with the distribution of this film.
These are only some highlights of the Video grants given in 2007.
