Reopenings Within Native Communities

While the state of New Mexico has announced its reopening, the pueblos, tribes, and nations of New Mexico are sovereign – each with their own governments that continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and continue determining what is best for their communities.  

Although many tribal communities in New Mexico invite guests to experience their culture and enjoy their tourism assets, please be respectful of the closures and safety measures that remain in place due to the pandemic. While some Native communities have chosen to partially or fully reopen, others have elected to keep their communities and tourism assets closed to visitation during this time. Please call ahead before you visit to ensure you have the most up-to-date information. 

You can find more information regarding general travel to New Mexico here.
