“The pueblo is honored to be designated an official New Mexico MainStreet site,” said Zuni Governor Arlen Quetawki, Sr., during the proclamation signing ceremony.

New Mexico MainStreet and the National Trust for Historic Preservation has dedicated Zuni Pueblo as the first Native American Main Street community in the nation.

“We are excited that the eyes of many state and national organizations and communities will be upon us.”

Zuni Pueblo believes that MainStreet’s grass-roots economic development matches the community’s needs, which are based on small, individual cottage arts production and sales.

Zuni MainStreet Project is being driven by a nine-member steering committee made up of business and community leaders, artists, and residents.

New Mexico MainStreet (NMMS) services 23 MainStreet projects and six state-authorized arts and cultural districts. A program of the New Mexico Economic Development Department, NMMS has adopted the National Trust Main Street Center’s Four-Point Approach to help affiliated downtown organizations create an economically viable business environment while preserving localcultural and historic resources.

“We have our work cut out for us, but Zuni is known for often taking the lead,” said Governor Quetawki.

“I welcome everyone to come see how Zuni will realize its very own MainStreet.”
