Isleta Pueblo Feast Day – St. Augustine
Aug 28 all-day

Isleta means “Little Island” in Spanish, but Isleta Pueblo is hardly “little” having and area of 211,002 acres and a population greater than three thousand.

Isleta has had a troubled history. When the Pueblo Revolt began, many of the members fled to Hopi settlements in Arizona, while a number of Isleta people accompanied the Spanish in their retreat to El Paso del Norte. After the rebellion was brought under control, the Isleta people returned to their former home, some bringing Hopi mates and half-Hopi Children.

When some members of the Laguna Pueblo and the Acoma Pueblo joined the Isleta community in the eighteen hundreds, friction within this heterogeneous society led to internal disagreement over religious and ritual matters.

The solution to this conflict resulted in the creation of the satellite settlement of Oraibi. The Pueblo today is comprised of two small communities. Oraibi and Chicale and the the main Pueblo, Isleta.

The language is generally Tiwa with most people speaking English as well. Agriculture is the principal occupation of the Isleta people. Additional revenue is derived from land leased to local business concerns and to the United States Government.

A high portion of the population works outside the reservation, but a recent revival of pottery making is giving work to a number of artisans.

The Chiwiwi family, which is noted for its high quality work, has created fine products in the traditional style of pottery which are gaining the attention of collectors. Embroidery and jewelry-making are also experiencing a revival.

Isleta is also known for excellent bread baking.

The Isleta Pueblo performs several dances open to the public during June, July and August as well as September Fair and Christmas festivals.

Camping and fishing at Sunrise Lake on the Isleta Reservation are popular vacation attractions.

Wagon Mound Bean Day Celebration
Aug 31 – Sep 3 all-day

The historic event of Bean Day began in 1909 when Higinio Gonzales and his crew cooked up a pot of beans in wash boilers behind the school house for what was then called the “Mora County Farmers Harvest Jubilee.” The following year, the name “Bean Day” was born to honor the crop that was once a staple of the local farming economy. In those days, Wagon Mound was a major center for the production of pinto beans. Although few pinto beans are grown in the area these days, the tradition continues as an enjoyable family oriented celebration.
