Salvador Cabada Herrera
"I was born in the village of La Mesa de Navar, in the state of Durango, Mexico. My family and I came to the United States when I was eight years old. I have always been interested in the Iberian influence of North America. It wasn’t until this past summer that I finally had the opportunity to conduct my own research in New Mexico, with guidance from Professor John Nieto-Phillips.

With a research grant from the Hutton Honors College, I spent the summer of 2006 at the University of New Mexico’s Center for Southwest Research, researching Catholic and Native American religious traditions. Conducting research at one of the nation’s premiere archives and visiting Latino and Native American cultural sites as part of that project has encouraged me to aim higher, to think historically, and to be original."
