EQUUS presents - The Cottonwood Dancers - Ceremonial Dances from the Tesuque Pueblo at Thunderbird Ridge.

For the Pueblo people of Northern New Mexico, Ceremonial dances are a key expression of their tradition and faith. The ‘social’ dances are offered to the public to share their good will and blessings. Local business EQUUS and The Cottonwood Dancers from Tesuque Pueblo have united to bring these special dances to private groups. Their Buffalo and Deer Dances honor the spirit of these sacred animals, the seasons and the land. 

Take this excellent opportunity to come together in an amazing experience of authentic Native tradition in a beautiful natural environment at a private ranch. Perfect for Professional Groups, Families, Corporate Groups, Young Professional Organizations, Entrepreneurs Organizations, and Private Parties, Wedding groups, and more.
