Santa Ana, Santa Clara & Santo Domingo - Albuquerque Area Pueblos
The Pueblo of Santa Ana is located
on NM-550, about 8 miles northwest of
Bernalillo, just west of the confluence
of the Rio Jemez and Rio Grande.
Santa Ana is a small pueblo with a
rich history dating back over 1,000 years.
Although Santa Ana is one of the smaller pueblos,
the people take pride in being one of the more progressive
economically. The pueblo has become a multi-faceted corporation,
with enterprises such as the Tamaya Cooperative (selling traditional
items, as pottery and textiles), a Garden Center, Blue Corn Enterprises,
fine dining restaurants and 45 holes of championship golf. To showcase
their tradition of hospitality, Santa Ana has created the Santa Ana Star
Casino and the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa. Starlight Lanes Bowling
Alley is part of the Santa Ana Star Casino. We welcome you to a place where
culture and land are one.

Life in Santo Domingo has altered little since
the arrival of the white man. Great emphasis is
placed on the pueblo's religious organization, which
is the core of its social structure, and on the passing
on of its native language (Keres), customs, dances and songs.
Santo Domingo can be reached by paved road off I-25, about halfway
between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The pueblo is known for its fine heishi of
turquoise, other stones and silver, and for its strictly traditional pottery.
The pueblo is open to visitors for its Annual feast day in August.
