1992 | KNME-TV, The Institute of American Indian Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico
1992 marked the Columbus quincentenary. Throughout the world, but especially in America, native peoples and immigrants grappled with the long-term consequences of the Native American encounter with Europeans. In the view of the Peabody Board, this local documentary captured the true legacy of this event. History texts have traditionally presented the European version of the voyage and its aftermath, often ignoring Indian accounts. With this innovative and instructive program, KNME provided a corrective effort. The station, in association with The Institute of American Indian Arts, helped achieve long-overdue recognition for the valor, determination, and achievements of the Pueblo culture before and after the arrival of Columbus. For so doing, a Peabody to Surviving Columbus.
