Visitor's Guide

The Pueblo de Cochiti welcomes all visitors to the Pueblo throughout the year, though at some times during the year, the Pueblo is closed to non-members for various activities.  As a pueblo people, respect for others and oneself is primary to maintain balance in life.  The Pueblo de Cochiti requests that respect be given for privacy of its members, for the rules and regulations for visiting the Pueblo, and for Tribal Officials by all visitors to the Pueblo.  In turn, the Pueblo offers a wide variety of experiences to visitors including recreation areas, pueblo dances, access to pueblo artists, and many more. 

“The Pueblo de Cochiti welcomes you.”

 

Visitor Rules and Regulations:

  1. Sketching, recording, picture taking, and any other means of audio or visual reproduction is prohibited within the Pueblo.  The Pueblo de Cochiti belief is that when an experience is unforgettable, that the experience is maintained in ones heart and mind, and cannot be reproduced unless experienced first-hand.  This gives the opportunity to re-visit the Pueblo de Cochiti and bring friends and family to share those experiences.
     
  2. Please refrain from entering ceremonial buildings or other structures and areas without permission.  Most ceremonial structures, and restricted areas are clearly marked with signs within the Pueblo.  If a visitor is unsure whether they should enter a structure or area, they should obtain permission from a pueblo member before entering.
     
  3. Please refrain from littering on the Reservation.  The Pueblo has recently instituted a fine schedule for littering.  These fines are strictly enforced.
     
  4. Observe all traffic rules.
     
  5. Respect the Pueblo, its Laws and its People.  Tribal Officials police the area throughout the day and night; please show these officials respect by obeying our laws, and their judgments.
