Jicarilla (Pronounced hek-a-REH-ya), is a large indian reservation in Northwest New Mexico.
The name “Jicarilla” means little basket and denotes an art form that made the basket makers unique. Other handicraft mastered by some tribal members are bead work, leather work, painting and pottery. To see some of this art visit the Arts and Craft Museum in Dulce.

The scenery incredibly awesome!
