The sun symbol is a part of Zia Pueblo's heritage and is used by the tribe for religious purposes. But the state of New Mexico and hundreds of businesses use it without permission or licensing. In an Oct. 30 lecture sponsored by the University Libraries Indigenous Nations Library Program, Zia Pueblo Assistant Tribal Administrator Ken Lucero and other tribal members speak about the significance of the sun symbol and the battle to protect it.
