Buffalo Thunder Casino

SANTA FE, NM – Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino will host the Pathways: Native Arts Festival from Friday, August 20 to Sunday, August 22, providing artist space to more than 500 Native artists during the 2021 Santa Fe Indian Market. The three-day public event is free to all visitors. Native artists interested in showing have two tiers of representation – free outdoor tented booths and premium indoor booths for a fee. A ticketed VIP preview event will be hosted at the resort on Thursday evening with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and live entertainment.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our resilience this past year as we begin to advance Native artistry and creativity,” said Karl Duncan, Executive Director of the Poeh Cultural Center. “Pathways will feature artist booths, live music, and amazing food all in the kind of event that is fun, personal and free. This past year we have promoted staying connected virtually with free workshops, classes, artist masks, artist grants and online markets but now we hope to reconnect with our Native arts community.”
