Santa Fe Celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day

Santa Fe has a strong connection with the Native Pueblo people of Northern New Mexico. For the 2018 Indigenous Peoples Day celebration groups representing many of the 23 Tribes in the area will be sharing traditional performances on the Santa Fe Plaza. Joining numerous cities across the nation, the City of Santa Fe in 2016 officially designated the second Monday of October annually as Indigenous Peoples Day.  A Resolution was passed unanimously by the Governing Body of Santa Fe, which honors and recognizes the contributions of Native Americans to the history and culture of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the United States.  Santa Fe reserves the day to take time to honor and uphold its valued Native American neighbors from the 23 Tribes, Nations and Pueblos in New Mexico, urban Indian citizens, and all of the wonderful Native American arts, culture and educational institutions that give Santa Fe such a strong sense of place.
