Special Event

Our final evening is a cocktail party at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, where you will become immersed in Native American culture and heritage. Guided tours will be available of the Museum's extraordinary exhibit "Here, Now and Always," which presents a panoramic view of the historical and contemporary lives of the diverse Native American cultures of New Mexico and the Southwest. You will also visit the Buchsbaum Pottery Gallery housing some of the finest examples of traditional and contemporary pottery crafts. The ethereal music of a Native American flutist will greet you as you enter the Museum. A Native American dance troupe will delight you with the intricacies of their dance steps, and will enthrall you with the stories of themselves, their peoples, and the origins of their dances.
