After yesterday’s experience at the Gathering of Nations, here are a few photos from Albuquerque and Santa Fe. This region of New Mexico is packed with history, great food, art and craft including exquisite pottery made by artisans of the 19 surrounding Pueblos.

Each Pueblo is self-governed as a sovereign nation, recognized by Abraham Lincoln in 1863 and commemorated with a silver-tipped cane (still in use today) for each Pueblo. Acoma Pueblo is one of the oldest communities in the U.S., inhabited for the past 2,000 years. The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque is a fantastic place to learn more about the Pueblos, their history and their beliefs.

More tomorrow,
