Nambé Pueblo is one of the Tewa Pueblos of the northern Rio Grande region. The name is a Spanish interpretation of the Tewa word “nanbe”, which roughly translates as “earth roundness”.
This new website is a place to find out news and upcoming events for Nambe Pueblo. In the coming months, we will have many exciting things to announce.
Jewelry, sculpture and traditional micaceous pottery are still as important to the Pueblo’s artisans as they are to collectors. And Nambe dances are just as revered. The Elk Dance takes place only every four to seven years on October 4, Nambe Feast Day.
Nambe Pueblo’s Feast Days include January 6 (Kings Day Celebration), Easter Sunday Dances, October 3 (Evening Firelight Vespers)’ October 4 (St. Francis de Assisi Feast Day) and December 24 (Buffalo Dance Following Christmas Eve Mass).
Nambe Pueblo is located off State Road 503, which can be reached from US 285/84 north of Pojoaque or in Espanola. For additional information please contact the Governor’s Office at (505-455-2036).
