  • An original cast member of the comedy classic “Blazing Saddles” will host a showing of the film at the Lensic Performing Arts Center on Nov. 21 to benefit the Santa Fe Animal Shelter.
    The event is a celebration of the 40th anniversary of film, director by Mel Brooks, and the 75th anniversary of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. David Huddleston, a Santa Fe resident and shelter supporter who portrayed Mayor Olson Johnson, will reminisce with some tall tales following the film in a question-and-answer session.
    Tickets for the event are available at the Lensic box office, 988-1234, or online at TicketsSantafe.org. Tickets are $50 and proceeds benefit the shelter and its work with homeless animals.
    The 90-minute showing begins at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Lensic, 211 W. San Francisco St.
    The comedy Western film was voted No. 6 on the American Film Institute’s 100 Years … 100 Laughs. The classic stars Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder as a sheriff and sharpshooter defending a small town from villains Slim Pickens and Harvey Korman. It features a brilliant cast that includes Brooks, Huddleston and Oscar-nominated Madeline Kahn.

  • In honor of all veterans and Native American Heritage Month, Jemez Springs Public Library will present a talk by author Judith Avila and Latham Nez, grandson of the last code talker, Chester Nez who passed away in June.
    They will talk about Nez’s memoir of his experiences as a code talker, one of the Native American heroes of World War II.
    Chester Nez was the last survivor of the original 29 Navajo code talkers of WWII — the men who developed the only unbroken code in modern warfare. During World War II, the Japanese managed to crack every code the U.S. military used. But when the Marines turned to their Navajo recruits to develop and implement a secret language, the men stymied the enemy and helped to assure victory for the United States in the South Pacific.
    After a career working at the VA hospital in Albuquerque, he lived with his son’s family in his later years. The family believes it is very important for the legacy of the code talkers to be remembered. Talking about the book, co-authored by Nez and Judith Avila, is a way to do so, to honor Chester Nez’s memory and the remarkable story of all the code talkers.

  • “Courage and Compassion: Native Women Sculpting Women,” is the first exhibit of its kind featuring leading American Indian Women sculptors of 20th and 21st centuries.
    The exhibit is open now at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and runs through Oct. 19, 2015. The exhibition features figures of women sculpted by seven American Indian women artists. Most of the 10 works on view will be in the museum’s outdoor Roland Sculpture Garden.
    There is a long history of sculpting among the indigenous peoples of the Americas. The artists in Courage and Compassion, while contemporary in their approach are steeped in tradition. Using the same materials as their ancestors did thousands of years ago, the works presented draw on cultural influences of those who have gone before
    The depictions of women shown in this exhibit are not portraits of particular women, with one exception, but speak to their strength in their native cultures, their roles and how they are viewed.
