|The northern New Mexico village of Chimayó remains much as it has been for over 200 years. We'll visit El Santuario de Chimayó, which has been called the "Lourdes of Northern New Mexico," because of the reputed healing powers of the earth found inside. We'll also visit a nearby weaving gallery.|
Chimayó is home to families known for their beautiful weaving. The Hispanic weavings are different from those of Native American origin, and it's interesting to see all of the things that can be made from the beautiful naturally dyed wool that is used.
We'll then depart for a scenic trip to Santa Clara Pueblo, where we'll visit the pottery studio of Paul Speckled Rock.
Santa Clara Pueblo is one of the friendliest pueblos of northern New Mexico, welcoming visitors. The pueblo is famous for its blackware and redware pottery. Mr. Speckled Rock and his wife, Rosalda, will talk about how the pottery is made at Santa Clara, and they'll talk about the families who are best known for their pottery.
We'll return to Santa Fe at about 5:00 PM.
