After the Pueblo Revolt, it took decades for the Spanish to come back, in force, and re-establish it's presence here in Nuevo Mexico. It was a non violent return for the most part..more celebration. The Palace of the Governors established ..and the right extended ..at that time, for the Indian Population to trade and sell it's arts and crafts on the plaza, but also on the Palace Portal. It is still a very active happening today!
We've always enjoyed visiting this bazaar!
This from NMMagazine:
Palace of the Governors Portal Program
In Santa Fe, New Mexico, along the south side of the Palace of The Governors, sit Native American artists and craftspeople who sell their handmade goods to tourists and local Santa Feans almost every day of the year, rain or shine. The 900+ vendors represent forty-one tribes, pueblos, chapters and villages in New Mexico, the Navajo Nation, and parts of Arizona.
