Cochiti Pueblo is one of New Mexico’s nineteen Indian Pueblos. It is located fifty five miles north of Albuquerque in the heart of their traditional homeland. The Pueblo comprises more than eighty four square miles of reservation land and has a population of over five hundred and twenty. The land, air and water adjacent to the reservation is of primary importance because it is the lifeline of the Pueblo traditions and culture. Cochiti Pueblo is well known for arts and crafts particularly jewellery, pottery and drums.
