Beautiful location in Santa Isabel Valley. You can almost imagine what is felt like to be in this quiet space. More and more native peoples from the area are staying involved and the mission encourages their parts of the narrative.

A very interesting Native American museum with unusual collections. Very few people visit so it is very personal.
