Pre-Conference Tours:

For those of you who are planning to make New Mexico your vacation destination, we have organized two exciting day trips. 

Wednesday, June 19th

Walking Tour:
Church of Light Headquarters, UNM Campus and Museums

Preconference participants will will briefly visit Church of Light Headquarters in the University District of Albuquerque.

Next, off to The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, the oldest public museum in Albuquerque, on the UNM campus. The Museum’s primary emphasis is on the American Southwest, yet the Maxwell Museum offers fascinating permanent and temporary exhibits in Anthropology, Archeology and Ethnography.

After a 1.5 - 2 hour visit we will walk off campus to enjoy lunch at a local eatery. After lunch we return to campus to visit The University of New Mexico Art Museum, which frequently features the painting, photography, prints and sculpture of the Transcendental Painting Group, the estate collection of Raymond Jonson and the Tamarind Institute lithography archives.

(This is a moderately active tour, participants must be able to walk a total of two miles at 5,200 feet above sea level, over the course of a five-hour tour and stand for up to two-hours at a time).

Admission to both museums is by donation.

Thursday, June 20

Acoma Sky City and Haak’u Cultural Center

Maxwell Museum
Acoma Pueblo

Located 60-miles west of Albuquerque, Acoma, or Sky City boasts of being the oldest, continuously occupied community in the United States. We last made this tour twelve years ago in 2007.

Built on a mesa-top 6,460 feet above sea level, and 300 feet above the desert floor, you’ll experience breathtaking views and amazing rock formations. As one of New Mexico’s most scenic and historic Native villages, the Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum preserve Pueblo traditions and provide education concerning the unique history of the Acoma People. We will take a Native-guided tour, visit the ancient village and meet local artisans selling their Native American pottery, jewelry and other crafts.

In deference to the Village Elders who live on the mesa year-round, dress modestly as you might when visiting a church in Europe.

Due to high elevation and low humidity we recommend that you wear a hat, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes, and bring plenty of water to drink. During summer, the temperature can top 95 degrees.  The tour is 1.5 hours and involves 3/4 of a mile walking on uneven rock surfaces.

Haak’u Cultural Center, guided tour and camera permit is $25.00 ($22 for seniors). Following the tour, we will have lunch at Yaak’a, the cultural center restaurant. Lunch will be approximately $15.

The remainder of Conference events are held in the Sandia Room
at the Best Western Rio Grande
