The Acoma Learning Center utilizes traditional education to promote individual skills, knowledge and cultural growth. The youth were brought together through their own desire to learn the culture and participate in festivities in honor of Tribal Administration. Through this group, the children have learned to pray and now understand the meaning in prayer in dance. They also find it a great joy to bring smiles to the audience and are always surprised to be praised by random people.

Between the clouds and the desert floor lies Acoma Pueblo, the city in the sky. One of the oldest continuously inhabited villages in the U.S., it's a place where the modern meets the traditional and where the old ways are respected and passed down from one generation to the next. #NewMexicoTrue
