Chamizal Oral History Project (El Chamizal Proyecto de Historia Oral)
Chamizal Oral History Project:
Redefining Borders, Redefining Home
The project documents the memories of individuals associated or affected by the Chamizal dispute; a century-long, international boundary conflict involving disputed territory in El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. Oral History interviews with key individuals will enrich Chamizal National Memorial's understanding of its own past while contributing to the historic record by preserving these experiences and making them accessible to researchers and the general public.

The only natural boundary between the United States and Mexico is the Rio Grande River, which was established in 1848 by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The Rio Bravo, as the river is known in Mexico, makes up about 1000 miles of the 2000-mile border between the two countries.
