Albuquerque is comprised of a colorful array of inhabitants that have contributed to its cultural flare going as far back as the cave dwellers. The 1300’s gave rise to pueblo settlements along the Rio Grande by the ancestors of today’s Native Americans. In the 1500’s, the Spanish arrived which led to unfortunate clashes and conflict. By the 1600’s the Spanish were here to stay and in 1706 Albuquerque was declared “founded” and was named after the Viceroy of new Spain, the Duke of Alburquerque. Supplies were provided to it colonists via El Camino Real. By the 1800’s, Mexico gained its independence from Spain which opened trade with the United States. Albuquerque became a busy hub as traders made their way to and from along the famous Santa Fe Trail. In 1912, New Mexico was officially granted statehood.
The combination of Native American, Spanish, and Mexican influences has historically provided Albuquerque with a unique culture of its own that is present in everyday life. Its reflection can be found in food, music, architecture, local celebrations, artwork, and the performing arts. Albuquerque’s diversity continues to change and grow as more than 70 different ethnicities make their home here and add their own special contributions to the colorful mix.
The Sandia Mountains serve as the backdrop for Albuquerque’s inhabitants now living in modern times. It is a land filled with sunshine and moderate temperatures as it transitions among its four seasons.
