If you're a lover of history, traveling, or just adventure in general,
you need to put Taos, New Mexico on your list of places to see. This
area is rich in Indigenous culture and history that spans back
centuries. You can find ancient dwellings and petroglyphs carved into
the landscape—as well as artwork, traditional music, and dance that
continue to be practiced today. It's an amazing place to explore, and
you're sure to come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation
for these incredibly resilient people.
Experience some of these unique traditions for yourself! There are several landmarks and events happening over the summer that you won't want to miss.
NOTE: The terminology “Native American” is falling out of favor with some groups, and the terms “American Indian” or “Indigenous American” are preferred by many Native people—which we honor throughout this article.
