Welcome to Santo Domingo Pueblo

Santo Domingo Pueblo (also known as Kewa; Santo Domingo was the name given by the Spanish in 1600), is located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, along the 1-25 corridor off Exit 259. For over 400 years, Santo Domingo Pueblo has been one of the central Pueblo communities in New Mexico and the homelands to many people for thousands of years. Ancestral ties can be traced back to Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon ancestors.


The Kewa Pueblo provides a variety of programs for the wellbeing of the Kewa people. We offer programs and resources in Community Health, Education, Kewa Health Outreach Program, and more.

The Kewa Pueblo is located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and for over 400 years, the pueblo has been central to others within New Mexico. Tradition is vital to the Kewa Pueblo, as many Kewa people are artisans in traditional pottery and jewelry making, and they continue to participate in ceremonial dances and teach the younger generations to uphold the Keresan language. The dances, art, and other traditions continue to have deep and significant meaning to the Kewa Pueblo community.
