FACT (#1) • • • The first burning of Zozobra was at a private party in artist Will Shuster’s backyard in 1924. He and his friends thought it would be cool to build a big marionette, drink a lot of tequila, and set the thing on fire. Of course it was amazing and everybody in town heard about it. The next year they all showed up. It was such a terrific success that the City of Santa Fe took over in 1926 and has been making and burning bigger and better marionettes ever since. Old Man Gloom is 50 feet tall now and over 60,000 people show up and go crazy. BURN HIM! Everyone is invited to voice their “gloom” on slips of paper, which are then burned up inside Zozobra. Shuster personally oversaw the construction of Zozobra until 1964, when he turned it over to the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe.

FACT (#2) • • • Santa Fe, built on unceded Pueblo lands (Oga Po'geh "White Shell Water Place" in Tewa), was named “La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asis” by Spanish settlers, and designated a territory in 1610. In 1680 the Pueblo peoples revolted against the desecration of their way of life, inspired by the Tewa religious leader, Po'pay. The revolt was successful causing the colonists to retreat, but 12 years later the territory was recaptured by Don Diego de Vargas after a bloody battle. Angered by the resistance, de Vargas executed 70 Pueblo elders on the Santa Fe Plaza. A statue of de Vargas was recently removed from Cathedral Park. “DeVargas” still names the shopping mall on Guadalupe St.

FACT (#4) • • • June 2021, New Mexico Hatch chile pepper seeds arrived at the International Space Station aboard SpaceX’s 22nd resupply mission as part of NASA’s Plant Habitat experiments. If successful, this crop will be added to astronauts’ diets. In space, crew members often lose some sense of taste and smell and prefer spicy foods. Peppers are also very high in Vitamin C and other nutrients. Researchers spent 2 years evaluating dozens of pepper varieties before selecting the NuMex Española Improved. This pepper “had all the makings of a viable space crop.”
