Culture and Heritage

one of a kind cultural heritage

There are few places in the world that can equal the unique intermingling of history and cultures found in the Land of Enchantment. Culture in New Mexico is a rich blend of Native American pueblos, tribes and nations, Hispanic and Latino cultures, Wild West attitudes and much, much more. Throw in the state’s storied history — from ancient Pueblo people and Spanish explorers to the Santa Fe Railroad, Billy the Kid and Robert Oppenheimer — and you have a one-of-a-kind cultural heritage that invites endless exploration and offers visitors options for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Customs, traditions and influences from a variety of cultures are on display every day in New Mexico, so no matter where you travel in the state, you will be surrounded by vibrant displays of a dynamic Southwestern heritage. The multicultural blend of Native American, Hispanic, Latino and Anglo cultures make daily life in this state a festival of blended traditions. New Mexico art, music, architecture and our world-famous cuisine are all reflections of this rich legacy and engaging day-to-day dynamic.
