After completion of the statue, everyone in El Paso was forced to come to terms with a landmark that is viewed by some as a monument to culture and others as a glorification of genocide. What is your perspective on the statue? What perspectives does it celebrate and what does it leave out? What does this story tell us about ourselves as a nation? Join other The Last Conquistador viewers to discuss the film.
