Santo Domingo Heritage Trail Arts Project

Santo Domingo Tribal Housing Authority

Funding Received: 2014
Santo Domingo Pueblo, NM
Funding Period: 1 year and 5 months

Santo Domingo Pueblo, NM is located near a heavy community rail station between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM. However, residents from the Santo Domingo tribe currently have no safe pedestrian access to the train station, and conversely, tourists and independent travelers have no safe way to walk from the train to destinations within the pueblo. The Santo Domingo Tribal Housing Authority, working with Laurie Olin and his landscape architecture firm, have proposed a pedestrian way that would connect the train with a new tribal artists markets and affordable housing options. The path itself will feature local artist-designed nodes for resting and lingering along the way. Through partnerships with the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the University of Virgina School of Public Health and School of Architecture, the tribe is also interested in exploring the role that this pedestrian way will contribute to imporoving physical and mental health for the Santo Domingo community.
