The Pante Project

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is reimagining Pueblo Harvest Restaurant as the Indian Pueblo Kitchen, an innovative teaching kitchen and restaurant centered around Indigenous cuisine education and exploration. Under the inspired leadership of Executive Chef Ray Naranjo (Santa Clara, Odawa), the Indian Pueblo Kitchen will offer guests and students an unforgettable Indigenous food experience. The opening date is contingent on public health mandates for museums and restaurants, but IPCC leadership is hoping for spring of 2021.

In anticipation of our restaurant’s opening, the Indian Pueblo Kitchen is introducing a new concept by Executive Chef Ray Naranjo called the Pante Project!

The Pante Project

“One consequence of the pandemic is the loss of community and human connection. People miss simple things like the experience of dining with family and friends at their favorite restaurants. So, until we reopen, we’re creating monthly events in which our customers can order a pre-prepared, Indigenous dinner online, pick it up curbside and then join us online to let us show you how it was prepared,” said Chef Ray.

“Participants will be able to see the process of how their meals came together, why the food was selected—and the cultural meaning behind the food. We are very excited about the Pante Project and believe it will be a fun new way to reconnect with our customers who miss having a unique, Pueblo-inspired food experience.”

Part of the proceeds from your Pante Project meal will go to the Pueblo Relief Fund, which was created by the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and All Pueblo Council of Governors in an effort to meet the most critical needs of the Pueblo Nations during the COVID-19 crisis. Now, those needs are once again increasing. Donations to the Pueblo Relief Fund will be used to address supply and service needs of the Pueblos in order to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Any additional contribution you can make is greatly appreciated. Visit to donate today. Thank you.
