Thank you for your interest in the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. We look forward to assisting you with story ideas, digital assets and information about our organization.
Founded in 1976 by the 19 Pueblo tribes of New Mexico, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is a nonprofit world-class museum and cultural center. It is located in the heart of Albuquerque amidst nearly 80 acres of land owned by the 19 Pueblos and serves as a gathering place where Pueblo culture is celebrated through creative and cultural experiences. The IPCC is comprised of museum and gallery space; a collection of murals and other Native art and artifacts; a library; an acclaimed restaurant, Indian Pueblo Kitchen; a premier Native American arts store and website, Indian Pueblo Store; and cultural programming and events – each celebrating the Pueblo culture of New Mexico. Visitors can learn fascinating history, shop for Native jewelry and art, watch a cultural dance, hear Native languages, and experience the flavors of traditional and contemporary Native cuisine.
Indian Pueblos Marketing, Inc. (also founded by the 19 Pueblo tribes of New Mexico) is the for-profit side of our organization. It includes a variety of owned and operated commercial enterprises designed to support the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, while providing economic opportunities to Pueblo and local communities. Many of these businesses are located across the street in our new development, Avanyu Plaza. This includes 12th Street Tavern, a new neighborhood eatery; the largest Starbucks in New Mexico; the top-rated Holiday Inn Express in Albuquerque; and TownePlace Suites by Marriott Albuquerque Old Town. Four Winds convenience store and Extra Space Storage are also located on the IPCC/IPMI campus. In the spring of 2023, IPMI will also add Rainwater Wellness, a spa and retail boutique, to its offerings.
IPMI also leases space at Avanyu Plaza. Current tenants include a credit union, a cookies and sweets shop, a Native-owned vegan grab-and-go eatery, three restaurants, and government agencies with Class A office space. IPMI has also signed leases with a major grocery co-op and a rock and gem shop. With this commercial development, IPCC/IPMI has helped to create a thriving new neighborhood that will have far-reaching benefits for the City of Albuquerque and will set a new standard for collaboration between local and tribal governments.
