Memorial Day Ceremony/ Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico

Honoring warriors, past and present

On Memorial Day, members of the Pueblo of Jemez performed traditional song and dance to honor veterans and current members of the US military from their village. The ceremony was held at the Red Rocks Cliffs, a sacred site to the Jemez people.  Native Americans have served in the US military at a higher rate in proportion to their population than any other American ethnic group.

Located on high mesas of the Southwest desert, the Pueblo of Jemez is an independent sovereign nation within the state of New Mexico, with its own government and justice system. The origins of the community can be traced back to the 13thcentury.

The murals of Albuquerque, New Mexico

The city government of Albuquerque, in partnership with the private sector, promotes a program of public art that is on display throughout the city. Called “MurosABQ,” (Muros is Spanish for “walls”) it promotes a U.S. southwest tradition of mural painting that is influenced by Mexican mural artists such as Diego Rivera. Both local artists, as well as muralists from all over the U.S., have painted their work on the walls of Albuquerque. New Mexico has long attracted artists to the inspiring natural environment of the high desert.
