The run commemorates the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and IPCC is raising funds to purchase a statue of Popé who led the Pueblo Revolt what some all, the first American Revolution. More than half of the funds have been raised for the statue with $25,000 remaining to achieve the goal of $70,000.
Renowned sculptor Cliff Fragua of Jemez Pueblo carved the white marble statue that can be seen in the south entryway of the Center.
The run also benefits youth programming. Each year, IPCC conducts a two-week summer camp for children ages 6-12 where Pueblo artists, farmers and cooks share Pueblo art, food, dance and history culminating on the last day with a Pueblo feast cooked by the campers for family and friends.
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is owned and operated by the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico with a mission to preserve and perpetuate Pueblo culture, advance understanding about Pueblo people, their accomplishments and evolving history.
