Honor Wall

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is continually grateful for the support of our donors, which allows us to serve our Mission. We acknowledge the generosity of the following organizations and agencies that uplift the programs and services of IPCC. Their vision and commitment allow us to preserve and perpetuate Pueblo culture, and advance understanding of the accomplishments and evolving history of New Mexico’s Pueblo people.


The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) strives to promote and advance traditional and contemporary Pueblo arts, culture, and lifestyles. The generous funding of the Albuquerque Community Foundation supports operational expenses related to our artistic dance program, the only venue in North America offering native dances year-round. Dance was also an integral component of the IPCC’s newest event–the Indigenous Cultural Arts Festival–held early June of 2022 to an appreciative audience of several hundred.


The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center was selected to receive a grant from The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM).This grant opportunity is intended to help Native Cultural Institutions to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and provide humanities programming to their communities. Funds will support the redesign and community-created content of the Center’s permanent exhibit, “We Are of This Place: The Pueblo Story.” It will also support staff, consultants, community presenters, and tribal individuals as they reimagine the exhibit to be more visually appealing and accessible, while ensuring its accompanying narrative is culturally accurate and sensitive to the historical events that impact the Pueblos through today.


In January 2022, the American Library Association (ALA) announced 200 libraries nationwide to receive grants through the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grants for Libraries. The Library/Archives of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center was one of just five organizations to receive the award in New Mexico to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. Funds will support salary for a staff member to assist with programming, reference desk duties and assisting patrons. Additionally, funds will facilitate professional development for staff, honorariums to advance library programming and key equipment and supplies.


The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center was selected to receive an American Rescue Plan grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The funds will be used to support jobs, manage facilities, and other costs so our local arts and cultural communities can recover from the pandemic.


As part of its commitment to supporting economic opportunity and upward mobility, Bank of America is proud to support the IPCC’s Indian Pueblo Kitchen to Facilitate Career-Ready Natives program. This initiative has been designed to assist Pueblo and Urban Native Americans acquire the skills and training necessary to find fulfilling, stable jobs.


New Mexico Arts recently supported the IPCC to expand its popular Pueblo Film Fest, the only film festival dedicated to the work of Pueblo/Native films and filmmakers.

This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.

IPK will provide exciting opportunities for students to learn Indigenous cooking techniques and restaurant operations and management in an engaging, collaborative environment—preparing them for a future in the hospitality industry.


The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Library & Archives is the only special collections research library devoted to preserving the history and culture of Pueblo people. A generous grant from the American Library Association will allow the library to hire back staff, upgrade computers that are ten years old, and purchase new books and other resources for the community. 


Projection Mapping Brings Native Pottery to Life While Creating Accessible Digital Archives is made possible through the generous support of the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation. The Digital Changemaker Grant is helping the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, in partnership with Ideum (Corales, NM), to use projection mapping technology to bring Native pottery designs, spanning historical and contemporary, to an interactive display, and create a database of pottery design and symbols.
