The Eastern New Mexico University and Blackwater Draw Museum sit on the traditional homelands of the Comanche (Nʉmʉnʉʉ Sookobitʉ), Mescalero Apache, Lipan Apache (Ndé Kónitsąąíí Gokíyaa), and Kiowa (Gáuigú) peoples past and present. We express our gratitude for the opportunity to live, work, and learn on this land. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit as well.
All three of these murals, as well as numerous others, were painted by Shirley East for the original museum on Highway 70.
