Santa Fe Plaza

Palace of the Governors

Native American Artisans Portal Program Native American Artisans are present under the portal everyday from 8:30 am - 5 pm

The Native American Artisans Program offers buyers the chance to interact with artisans who display their handmade wares under the portal of the Palace of the Governors, as they have for decades. The ever-changing array of handcrafted items includes pottery, some textiles, and jewelry made of traditional materials such as turquoise, coral, and silver.

Since its founding in 1909, the Museum of New Mexico has worked to protect and promote traditional southwestern Native American arts and crafts. By museum policy and legal right, the portal of the Palace of the Governors has been reserved for use by Native Americans as a place to display and sell wares made by themselves or members of their households. Administrative and maintenance costs are minimal and are paid by the New Mexico History Museum.
