King Felipe gave a formal speech at the gala dinner. During his speech, King remarked, “It is difficult to achieve a deep and objective knowledge of history, but it is a worthy effort, as it can guide us and help us look towards the future. How not to pay homage to all those who work so that the presence of Spain in these lands is known and valued fairly? Where would our historiography be today without the selfless work of great scholars and writers like Herbert Bolton, as well as Carlos Castañeda and, obviously, Gilberto Hinojosa and Felix Almaraz, both present here today? I feel the duty to pay homage to them; they have been pioneers in a field in which they have stood out for their honesty and intellectual reach.
