Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area

Description:

Stretching from Albuquerque to the Colorado border, the heritage area includes Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Taos counties. It encompasses a mosaic of cultures, including the Jicarilla Apache, eight Pueblo tribes, and the descendants of Spanish colonists who settled in the area beginning in 1598—a generation before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock.
