Explore New Mexico's Vibrant Native American Communities and Cultures.

From northwest to southeast and just about everywhere in between, New Mexico’s Native American presence is palpable. 

It’s a presence that dates back more than two millennia, when early ancestral tribes lived as hunter-gatherers throughout the Southwest. About 1,500 years ago, some of these groups joined together to establish permanent settlements, commonly known as pueblos. It’s a way of life that continues to this very day among New Mexico’s 22 tribes. And one that you can experience when visiting the many tribes that welcome respectful guests into their sovereign nations. Explore New Mexico’s pueblos, tribes and nations for more information and history.
