Great Ways to Honor Native American Heritage Month – Albuquerque
New Mexico’s Native American culture is reflected in nearly every aspect of life within Albuquerque – from the city’s art and architecture to its festivals and culinary traditions among the state’s 23 Native American pueblos, tribes and nations. The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has exciting exhibits and initiatives, including dance performances and lessons, unique contemporary Indigenous meals, and the opening of the new Indian Pueblo Teaching Kitchen. Hotel Chaco, the city’s latest luxury hotel, features works by contemporary Native artists, while the recently refreshed Nativo Lodge has 60 unique Artist Rooms and a stunning five-story facade painted by Jemez Pueblo muralist Michael Toya. Shop for Native American jewelry, arts and crafts at Bien Mur Indian Market Center, Palms Trading Co., and the Indian Pueblo Store. Also don’t miss a beer at Bow & Arrow Brewing Company, the first brewery in the country owned by Native American women.
