What an interesting way to spend a few hours and receive a short education. And have a wonderful bite to eat. We stayed long enough to see the dancers, which that particular day were the Red Turtle Dancers. Shopped a bit with the vendors.

I came here with my husband for a Rotary Club meeting. The exhibits were beautiful: sensitively executed and well organized. The food on the buffet was gloriously spicy with well-cooked vegetables that were not overlooked, as is usually the case. What a treat!

I was fascinated by the history, arts and crafts of the Pueblo people. I was astounded by how they survived for thousands of years in the arid desert. I especially enjoyed the local performances and dances.

We came hoping to learn more about the culture & history of the Native America Indians of this area. We were not disappointed! The center presents an interesting, informative and beautiful depiction the history as well as more contemporary art and culture.

This is a good representation of Native American History and culture. They had a "show" the day that I visited in which they had a demonstration of different dances. They also had a good restaurant that is worth visiting.
