Native American Pueblo Feast Days
There are 19 Pueblos still in existence in New Mexico today, and the people living in these Pueblos are descendants of the indigenous Native American Tribes that have been rooted in the southwest for centuries. Throughout the year, Native American tribal members gather together for their Pueblo Feast Days, which are a time to celebrate their traditional language, culture, and religions. Native American Pueblo’s are open to the public on these days, which allows guests to celebrate this wonderful connection to the past with tribal members, for a truly authentic New Mexican experience. Each Pueblo Feast Day is named after the Pueblo’s Patron Saint, and will feature a bountiful feast, as well as traditional dances and songs throughout the day.
There are several Pueblos located near our bed and breakfast, within easy reach for an exciting day trip. For a truly welcoming experience, head to the Cochiti Pueblo for St. Buenaventura’s Day, held every year on July 14th. The Cochiti Pueblo is located just 15-20 minutes away from our bed and breakfast, allowing you to easily participate a full day of music, dancing, and costumes with this Native American Pueblo. The next day, head north to the popular Taos Pueblo, for the annual intertribal powwow, where you’ll learn the history of this beautiful Pueblo, and enjoy song and dance that have been passed down through the generations. The historic Taos Pueblo is the largest surviving multistoried pueblo in the United States, and offers its guests a truly authentic New Mexican Pueblo experience.
