A Brief History of the Nambe Pueblo
Nambe is only a few minutes north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the Tewa language spoken by the Nambe people, the word “Nambe” means “People of the Round Earth”. Perhaps this is in reference to the landscape which encircles the pueblo with its spectacular beauty and breath-taking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the distance. The Nambe Pueblo is almost completely Hispanicized and is almost completely surrounded by non-Indian residents. However, there has been a recent renaissance of interest in the traditional rituals and crafts and the Nambe artists are making a comeback. Weaving is being revived with kilts and cotton belts. Traditional Tesuque Indian Pottery is also coming back with black on black and white on red designs similar to the work of Taos and Pircuis Pueblo potters.

“Fantastic, Perfect. . . didn‘t want to leave.”
Fantastic owners -friendly, helpful, and good conversation. They set the tone in the dining room and fellow travelers followed their lead -as did we! Perfect location, quiet and comfortable. We were sorry to have to leave after a week. ~ V Miller Colorado
