Feast days are a special time for the Pueblo communities. More than a dozen Pueblo nations in New Mexico welcome visitors to their villages throughout the year in celebration of culture and religion. Often the public is invited to view traditional dances and feast on tantalizing dishes that spotlight traditional foods and ingredients like red and green chile, oven bread, beans and corn. On this show we’ll learn more about the significance of these special days and how they evolved over the years.
