Albuquerque city leaders are supporting the beginning of a new Albuquerque Indian school district.
The objective is to be a pueblo version of ABQ Uptown with shopping, food, cultural displays and more, including office space for startup Indian businesses.
The development will be built near 12th and I40 on Indian land in the middle of Albuquerque; it's where the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center sits now and 19 pueblo governors have worked together to try to make the development a reality.
"It's a very exciting day, a day to celebrate I mean, we're finally coming together. It's a day to show unity within our pueblos and to show ability to be able to do solid economic development." said Mike Canfield of Indian Pueblos Federal Development Corp.
The public launching of the district happens Saturday at 9 a.m.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
