Pueblo Indian Cultural Center

Ordered once again to amuse myself, I headed out the door. To get to the Pueblo Indian Cultural Center, I headed west on I-40, You would normally get off at the 6th / 12th St exit, go straight across 6th and turn right on 12th. Unless you’re not familiar with the area. In which case you do what I did and wind up going right on 6th and taking Menaul back west to 12th. Which turned out to be okay as it made the turn into the parking lot a right hander instead of left against traffic. I clarified the photo policy at the front desk (“Oh, just anywhere.”) and decided to have lunch on premise at the Pueblo Harvest Cafe & Bakery. While I didn’t avail myself of the bakery, I did have their ‘flea market sandwich’ which is “Frybread topped w/ sliced lamb, shredded lettuce, diced tomato & green chile”. The frybread was the size of the plate. I think that I should have just rolled it like a burrito but I only folded it like a taco. It was delicious though. The center itself, when I made it through the first floor and didn’t have much to show for it, wasn’t being really photogenic. Until I got to the bigger downstairs. It is full of pottery and art. The selections that I put in this slideshow are a smorgasbord of styles. Each pueblo had variations on the pieces that I chose to display. In all, if there’s one criticism of the center, it’s that there wasn’t enough emphasis on contrasting the cultural differences of each pueblo people.
