    Description

    Many of the livestock grazing permittees on the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests in northern New Mexico are descendants of Hispanic settlers who have farmed and ranched in the region for 400 years. Much of the permitted land was formerly owned or used by local communities under Spanish and Mexican land grants. Cultural differences and historical issues of landownership and use contribute to disagreements between permittees and federal land managers. This study will examine current economic, social, and cultural aspects of livestock ownership by these permittees to help agency managers administer the lands with increased effectiveness by promoting greater cultural understanding.
