Indian Pueblo Cultural Center
Holiday shoppers will enjoy festive decorations, a hot cocoa bar, children’s craft activities, and an array of gifts for sale by Native artists at the 5th annual Pueblo Shop and Stroll in the courtyard of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) on Friday, December 6, from 4 to 8 p.m. During the event, the White Mountain Apache Crown Dancers will perform an energetic and captivating dance around the courtyard’s bonfire.
In addition to welcoming collectors of Native art and visitors from across the country and world, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center invites media representatives to attend and document the special event and capture still and video images of its stunning Southwest visuals.
“The Pueblo Shop and Stroll is a wonderful way to welcome the holidays,” says Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Cultural Programs Manager Alicia Ortiz (Santa Ana Pueblo). “Our Center is beautifully lit with luminarias and bonfires, there are spectacular Apache dances, and shoppers can buy meaningful gifts for their loved ones directly from Native artists.”
Shumakolowa Native Arts will stay open until 7 p.m. so visitors can come in from the cold and browse their selection of high-end Native jewelry and pottery, selection of Shumakolowa-exclusive Native American gift baskets, and many other gift ideas ranging from stocking stuffers to showpieces. Visitors are also invited to have dinner at the on-site Pueblo Harvest restaurant, known for Native American, regional, and acclaimed pre-European-contact dishes.
