You may looking at the photo below, and wondering if Joe Sabatini thinks that don Juan de Onate was a "war criminal and butcher". No, actually he was just displaying protestors' signs that he collected at what he called the "John Houser Sculpture Riot". For more about this riot and other "Genealogical and Cross Cultural Adventures", read the New Mexico Genealogical Society blog post "Former Special Collections Librarian Gives Talk at NMGS Meeting".
Joe Sabatini is a librarian with 41 years experience in New Mexico's libraries, most of his years working in the Albuquerque Public Library system. He retired in December 2008 and agreed to give a presentation for NMGS today.
