Santa Ana, Santa Clara & Santo Domingo - Albuquerque Area Pueblos

Santa Ana (sahn-tah-AN-nah)
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.
Location:Santa Ana NM 87004

Santa Clara (SAHN-tah-KLAH-rah)
Santa Clara lies 22 miles northwest of Santa Fe and is easily reached via US 84/285 and NM-30. The pueblo's Tourist Information Office provides information on the pueblo and directions to various arts and crafts shops. Santa Clara is known for its highly polished black and red pottery, and its outstanding painters and sculptors. Several dances and festivals such as the Buffalo and Corn Dance are open to the public. Additionally, the pueblo offers fishing and camping in the Canyon Recreational Area. The beauty of the pueblo's archaeological sites and the splendor of its scenery are famous in the Southwest. Tribal operated gaming is available at Big Rock Casino Bowl.
Location:Española NM 87532

Santo Domingo
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.
Location:Santo Domingo Pueblo NM 87052
