Welcome to New Mexico's Pueblos, Tribes and Reservations

Santo Domingo Pueblo

Central region of New MexicoBecause Santo Domingo Pueblo is located near the ancient Cerrillos turquoise mines, the village people have a distinguished history of making fine jewelry and heishi. The Santo Domingos are still great traders very much like their Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon ancestors. Many roadside stands with jewelry, pottery and silverwork for sale can be found during a visit to this pueblo. Look for these special items and others during the Santo Tourquoise jewelry from Santo Domingo PuebloDomingo Arts and Crafts Market held each Labor Day weekend. More than 350 Santo Domingo artists, traditional dances and food booths are a part of the festivities.

This traditional Keresan pueblo also hosts an internationally known ceremonial dance on Aug. 4 that honors the pueblo's patron saint, St. Dominic. It attracts more than 2,000 Native American participants in a dramatic Corn Dance.

Visitors are welcome to the pueblo, however, the Santo Domingo people are very adamant about preserving their traditional way of life. A cultural center and small museum provide opportunities for visitors to learn more about the pueblo, where Census 2000 figures counted about 3,166 people. There's no admission fee, but donations are appreciated. The pueblo also has a small museum and a gas station off of the Santo Domingo exit on I-25 between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The pueblo is located 25 miles (40 km) south of Santa Fe.
