I was fortunate to visit The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque NM. in the photo below. The center is opened 7-days a week with varying prices seniors, adults, students, military, and groups. Click the link for detailed pricing.
On the weekends, the center host dances from the local Pueblo communities, as featured in the photos below.
The displays exhibit the journey of a proud and significant people who have lived along the Rio Grand River surviving since before 700 to 900 AD.
With the arrival of the Spanish, Mexican, and European immigrants from the Eastcoast of the continent and later the American Government. The ancient world of the Pueblo Indians changed forever.
Throughout the centuries the survival of the Pueblo people has continued and will thrive with continuity to work together to as one community.
The center offers an opportunity to taste traditionalPueblo, at the “Pueblo Harvest Cafe.” I would recommend the Fry Bread, which I tried and loved. The menu includes various other traditional dishes unique to the American Southwest.
The gift shop has multiple displays of jewelry, and Pueblo authored books and comics covering every genre of Pueblo life along with the vibrant, colorful clothing, rugs, and other assorted accessories, providing an incredibly visual experience.
The center recommends visitors needing accommodations use the Holiday Inn Express located in the historic Albuquerque Indian School District. It is located across the street from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and is owned and operated by the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico, providing a tradition of Pueblo hospitality.
I truly enjoyed my visit and will return to experience more of the culture and diverse offerings to learn more about the Pueblo People. 🙂
