This workshop will examine an excerpt from a sodomy case that took place in Sante Fe, New Mexico in 1731. A Spanish man accused two indigenous Pueblo men of committing sodomy in the countryside. Participants will interrogate the document and propose multiple interpretations about its formulaic structure and attempt to connect this case to a broader historical trend about colonization in the Americas.
