Pueblo Cultural Center planning business incubator

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has received a $20,000 grant from New Mexico Gas Company to begin planning a Native American makerspace and business incubator.

The initiative is part of the Indian Pueblo Opportunity Center, a collaborative space where Native Americans and other community members interested in starting businesses in the areas of agriculture, food-based production and other creative industries, including jewelry and pottery, can have access to tools, acquire skills, further knowledge, and receive support and training, according to a news release from the cultural center.

“Being the Gateway to the 19 pueblos of New Mexico for our visitors, we feel we can also serve as the gateway to opportunity for Pueblo people and other Native American communities through business creation and growth,” says Mike Canfield, president and CEO of the cultural center.
