  • World's Largest Powwow comes to Albuquerque

    The world’s largest gathering of Native American and indigenous people will begin April 24 in Albuquerque.
    The 31st Annual Gathering of Nations, considered the most prominent Native American powwow in the North America, will host tens of thousands of people and more than 700 tribes from throughout the United States, Canada and around the world.
    The three-day event will include more than 3,000 traditional Native American singers and dancers competing, and more than 800 Native American artisans, craftsmen and traders displaying and selling their work.
    In addition, 27 contemporary indigenous bands will be performing a wide variety of musical genres on Stage 49 including a fashion show and DJ glow dance event.
    Vendors in the Native Food Court will offer guests a large selection of food choices ranging between southwestern-style cuisine and traditional Native American fare.
    As part of the Gathering of Nations, a young Native American woman will be crowned Miss Indian World and represent all native and indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador.
    Native American and indigenous women will represent their different tribes and traditions. The contestants will compete in the areas of tribal knowledge through interviews, essays, public speaking and traditional presentation and dance.

  • New hotel to open in Santa Fe

    Two buildings in Santa Fe — Marian Hall, completed in 1910, and the old St. Vincent Hospital building, completed in the early 1950s — show that old structures can be given new life.
    Drury Hotels is transforming these buildings, the new Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe. Two blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza and adjacent to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, the Drury Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe will be the first new large hotel to open in downtown Santa Fe in 18 years.
    Also part of the Drury’s revival of these five acres of dormant space at the intersection of East Palace Avenue and Paseo de Peralta is the development of pedestrian walkways and gardens.
    The property, which will officially open in August, will be a full-service hotel with 182 rooms, a restaurant, a 3,800-square-foot ballroom, and a year-around, heated rooftop bar and pool with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. There will be retail and gallery space on the Paseo de Peralta side of the property.
    An underground parking garage will underlie two-thirds of the south side of the property, with new suites and gallery spaces constructed above it. But even with all of the new and existing buildings, 40 percent of the site is devoted to open space.

  • Celebrate National Parks Week, Earth Day

    In recognition of National Parks Week, Bandelier National Monument will waive entry fees on Saturday and Sunday. For the duration of National Parks Week — April 19-27 — Bandelier is offering several guided hikes. Both Bandelier and the County of Los Alamos will also celebrate Earth Day on April 22 with several events including the groundbreaking of the new Nature Center at Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).
    On April 19, Bandelier National Monument’s lead archaeologist will lead a 4-mile, three-hour guided hike along Burnt Mesa Trail. On April 20, a similar two-hour guided hike near Loop C in Juniper Campground will be offered. Both off-trail hikes will give hikers a glimpse at the earliest and latest mesa-top Ancestral Pueblo sites. Both hikes are moderate in skill level.
    On Sunday, get a look at the areas impacted by fire and floods and see exposures of the Rabbit Hill volcanics during a “Fire and Flood Hike” from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The 10-mile hike from Ponderosa Campground to Upper Alamo crossing will be led by plant specialist Brian Jacobs and Elaine Jacobs.
