Santo Domingo Tribe

Santo Domingo Pueblo, New Mexico



The Santo Domingo Pueblo, located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is currently occupied by more than 3,600 tribal members. The Santo Domingo Planning Department and Housing Authority, Enterprise Community Partners, Tribal Utility Authority, Cornerstones Community Partnerships, Atkin Olshin Schade Architects, and Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative will work together on a cultural district plan for Santo Domingo Pueblo. The tribe is looking for new ideas to address its challenges, which include 25 percent of tribal members living below the poverty level and a 23 percent unemployment rate. The cultural district plan will document the cultural heritage of the Santo Domingo Tribe, establishing livable and culturally appropriate guidelines for historic adobe structures and new development. The plan will also promote cultural and artistic entrepreneurship.
