Loretto Chapel

Situated in the Southwestern United States is Santa Fe, the City of Holy Belief. It was here that in the 1800s seven holy sisters set up a school for girls, and when it was time, they constructed a chapel. This is where the myth of the Loretto Chapel staircase started, and ever since, faithful guests have been gathering to the church to get a peek at the subject of the Santa Fe miracle – the chapel stairs. The whole chapel was planned by renowned French architect Antoine Mouly. Unluckily, Mouly never lived to see the work completed. The construction was completed almost in 1878.

Museum of Indian Arts & Culture

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, one of four galleries in the Museum of New Mexico system, is the best source of Native art and material beliefs and tells the myth of the people of the Southwest from pre-history through modern art. The museum assists a diverse, multicultural audience through changing exhibitions, public lectures, field trips, artist residencies, and other educational programs.

Keshi

Constructed in 1981 as a co-op for Zuni arts and crafts, Keshi has always retained personal affiliations with individual carvers, jewelers, and potters. They continue to buy straight from the Zuni people. Their realistic prices and complete genuineness reveal this. They host one of the major selections of Zuni fetishes in the world and they feel grateful to be involved with these kind and substantial people.
