The Land of Enchantment’s largest city is rich in Native American and Mexican cultures, though there are plenty of reminders that it remains Walter White’s territory.

How Hatch Chile Season Became the Pumpkin Spice of the Southwest

Green chile, and red, are the staples of life in New Mexico. While it's possible to go a day without chile, one has to ask oneself, why would I do that?

Here at the Bottger Mansion we serve green chile in omelettes, quiches, scrambled eggs, on waffles and in scones.

The Hatch hype is real, but for a limited time only—and that’s what makes it special.

KiMo Theatre

KiMo Theatre

What’s in a name?
Italian immigrant, Orestre Bachechi, who is responsible for building the theater, held a naming contest and asked the public to mail in suggestions of six letters or fewer. He received over 500 responses. He decided on KiMo which is a combination of two Tiwa words meaning “mountain lion”, which the then Albuquerque Journal referred to as the “king of beasts”. Bachechi found this appropriate as he believed the theater should be adopted as the king of theaters. He was quoted as saying, “KiMo was favored because it contains the first letters of the main words in king of movies.” If that wasn’t special enough, Tiwa is not a written language so the spelling was constructed specifically for the naming of the theater. Talk about your fun facts!

Arizona Turquoise Mines - Sleeping Beauty

The Sleeping Beauty mine is seven miles outside Globe, AZ. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is noted for its solid, light blue color with no matrix. The host rock is granite. Sleeping Beauty turquoise is the favorite of Zuni Pueblo lapidaries and silversmiths for the purity in color. This mine was one of the largest in North America.

Now, one of the most prolific mines in the US has been closed! The Sleeping Beauty mine produced well, about 1600 pounds a month, according to information obtained from the miner/owner in 2010. The tons of tailings piles, which produced most of the turquoise, have even been exhausted. The beautiful, solid color of Sleeping Beauty is especially beloved by many Europeans. A great amount of this turquoise was exported to Italy & France alone.

Indian Pueblo Cultural Center
08/10/2019

Indian Pueblo Cultural Center

On this day in 1680, the Pueblo peoples rebelled against their Spanish oppressors. Po’pay, a religious leader from Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, organized a revolt against the Spanish. It is known as the first successful revolution against an oppressor on North American soil.

According to our cultural stories, to coordinate the timing of the uprising, he and his followers sent runners to each pueblo with knotted yucca cords. One knot was to be untied each day, and the revolt would begin on the day the last one was untied. However, the Spaniards arrested two of the Pueblo runners, and the Pueblo communities were quickly notified to accelerate the start of the revolt. The attacks began on August 10, two days before the last knot would have been untied. The Spaniards took refuge in Santa Fe; the besieging Pueblo Indians cut off their water supply to the point of surrender, but soon permitted them to leave the area and travel south into Mexico.

The Pueblo Revolt of 1680 holds great historical significance because it helped ensure the survival of Pueblo cultural traditions, lands, languages, religions, and sovereignty, while preserving a respect for life, harmony, peace, and freedom.

Po’pay was born around 1630 in Ohkay Owingeh (which the Spanish renamed San Juan) in what is now the state of New Mexico; his given name was Popein (pronounced bó -bein), which means "ripe squash" in the Tewa language. In his life’s journey and commitment to his people, he became a religious leader and was responsible for traditional religious activities. As time passed, he could no longer tolerate his people’s suffering under Spanish settlers. Pueblo people were forced to provide labor, food, and other items to support the growing Spanish communities. The Spaniards also pressured the Pueblo people to convert from Pueblo religion and way of life to adopt Christianity—those Pueblo people found practicing their traditional Pueblo religions were tortured, and in some instances, executed.

In 1675, Po’pay and 46 other Pueblo leaders were convicted of “sorcery,” and he was among those who were flogged, while others were executed. This atrocity was a catalyst for setting into motion the liberating actions of Pueblo Revolt.

Artwork: “August 10, Pueblo Warriors Attack” by Tommy Montoya of Ohkay Owingeh. It is part of a series by Montoya, on display in the Perseverance area of our museum.
