Spend the Day at Albuquerque's Indian Pueblo Cultural Center 

Not far from our Albuquerque apartments is a unique destination that preserves the Pueblo culture. It's known as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) and is where you can enjoy everything from fascinating exhibits to a delicious meal. Here is some of what you'll discover during your visit: 

Resilience Garden 

Walk through the Resilience Garden to learn about Pueblo farming practices. It also features endangered Pueblo crops and showcases the IPCC's "core values of sustainability and stewardship." 

Indian Pueblo Store 

Founded in 1976, the Indian Pueblo Store is "where you'll discover the iconic artistic traditions of the Southwest." It features the works of emerging and internationally renowned Native American artists. While the artists often create using centuries-old techniques, they usually add contemporary elements to their work. The varied selection includes cufflink bracelets, wicker baskets, and colorful rugs.

Cultural Dance Program 

The IPCC is the only venue in North America to host Native American dances every weekend. It highlights groups from the 19 pueblos of New Mexico and neighboring tribal nations. The social dances are meant to be shared with the public, and at times, the groups ask visitors to participate in the fun.

Indian Pueblo Kitchen 

Finally, enjoy an indigenous dining experience inside the Indian Pueblo Kitchen. The culinary team uses the finest, freshest ingredients. They create the recipes from scratch, and every bite bursts with memorable flavor. Offerings include Tewa tacos, blue corn enchiladas, and hand-cut Native American beef ribeye. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 

After spending a fun-filled day at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, curl up at home with a book from a locally-owned bookstore. Finally, to call our Albuquerque apartments home, please contact us. We'd love to show you everything Olympus Highlands North has to offer.
