NAIWA NM Chapter interviewed on KRQE/KASA

Updated: Jul 17, 2019

On May 18, 2018, NAIWA New Mexico Chapter members were interviewed on the KQRE/KASA morning show. Former NAIWA NM Chapter President Marita Roth and Publicity Chairwoman Georgia Pedro both were invited to the stuido.

The video has since been taken down off the website but here is the story that accompanied the interview:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The North American Indian Women's Association gears up for a special meeting on Saturday, May 12.

The North American Indian Women’s Association has been in existence for 48 years.  Founded in 1970, chapters throughout the US promote cultural awareness, Native American heritage and more.
