The Congregation Albert Brotherhood and Sisterhood, an organization dedicated to providing cultural outreach and recognition among Albuquerque's Jewish community by sponsoring local political debates and helping fund entities as diverse as the Roadrunner Food Bank and the Albuquerque Holocaust Museum, present the Jemez Pueblo Artisan Fair on Sunday, April 17, from 10am to 4pm at Congregation Albert. Dancers, artisans and craftspeople from the Pueblo of Jemez (known as Walatowa in the Towa language) will joyously present aspects of their vibrant and vital culture to fairgoers. Jeff Paul, president of Temple Albert Brotherhood, says that more than 20 vendors will be on hand and tribal dancers and musicians will provide an environment rich with activity and nuance. By creating cultural bridges through events like this artisan fair, Paul and congregants at Temple Albert hope to broaden the sense of community and cooperation already evident in the Duke City. Personally, I really, really hope they have fry bread for sale. Congregation Albert • Sun Apr 17 • 10am-4pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
