Just 25 miles south of Santa Fe, Kewa Pueblo (formerly known as Santo Domingo Pueblo) is situated on the west bank of the Rio Grande River and is close to the turquoise mines of Cerrillos, NM. The pueblo has a deep cultural history of jewelry making using locally mined turquoise and hishi. The pueblo hosts one of the largest anual pueblo celebrations each August 4 to honor their patron, Saint Dominic. Thousands of visitors attend the festivities watching the Green Corn Dance, eating the local food (often as an invited guest at someone's home), and purchasing beautiful jewelry.
