Native American Feast Days

Native American feast days allow tribal members to come together in a renewal of their language, culture and religion. On these days, the communities celebrating a feast day are often open to the public, and members of the tribe will prepare a variety of bountiful meals to share with their visiting guests. Visitors are often fascinated to see that pueblo life is a window to another world. Not relegated to history books or museums, this is a living culture that carries on the centuries-old traditions of their ancestors.

Feast days are as much celebrations of ancient Native American heritage as they are commemorations of Catholic saints. Feast days include traditional dances, cultural activities, food and arts vendors. Each dance tells a different story and serves a different purpose. Every dance is considered a prayer, not a performance. Drums beat with an insistent cadence and the air is filled with the fragrance of piñon smoke.

For a complete schedule of Native American Feast Days and contact information for each Pueblo, please refer to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center's website.
