The Guest House

Last message we promised a photo of our temporary quarters in this charming guest house. We were unable to come through due to computer glitches. Actually it was camera glitches. Well, got them fixed and now we can show you a photo of the exterior of our charming home-away-from-home.

We also took a trip to the Plaza and walked the world-famous portal. This covered area adjoins the Palace of the Governors. Native American artists are assigned places along the wall to display and sell their goods. The ability to sell there is determined by lots being drawn. So, on any given day, you will find a different mix of artists represented. We’ll return and take some pictures for a future issue of Tribal Artery.

We also ventured into the Mountain Men Show area in the courtyard behind the Palace of the Governors. There were many displays of goods from the Old West – from knives and leather garments to ladies’ gingham dresses and old Indian goods.We’ll try to post some photos, if the computer permits.

One tee-pee even housed the blacksmith.

Tribal Artery is the blog of Aboriginals: Art of the
