Jemez Pueblo Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 4 photos
Jemez Pueblo is set along the Jemez River in an open red-rock valley, west of NM Highway 4. The 88,000-acre reservation includes two fishing lakes (Holy Ghost Springs and Dragonfly Lake - permit only Apr.-Oct. on weekends and holidays).
With a population of 3400, it is the last remaining Towa-speaking community in the state. The local Black Eagle and Star Feather Powwow Singers were nominated for a Grammy Award in 2002.
The only part of the pueblo open to the public is the Walatowa Visitor Center (opened in 2000). It contains a small museum, crafts shop, a nature walk, and rotating art and photography exhibits.
Across the street from the Visitor Center, arts and crafts and traditional foods are sold at the Jemez Red Rocks Open-Air Market (10-6 weekends, Apr.-Oct.). There are also a number of road-side fry bread stands on the way to the town of Jemez Springs, 12 miles north on NM 4 (see separate VT page).
Jemez Pueblo is sometimes open to the public for special events, demonstrations and ceremonial dances. Call ahead for details at (505) 834-7234. Also, remember that photography (still and video) and sketching are prohibited.
