Native American Art at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino
A Museum In A Resort
From the moment you drive up to the entrance of Buffalo Thunder, guarded by a fierce bronze dancer, you’re immersed in an art and culture that’s unmatched.
No, you aren’t in a museum (well, you kind of are). You’re at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino.
The Pueblo of Pojoaque’s Buffalo Thunder Collection of Art is home to more than 400 pieces of unique art, sculptures and architecture in a gallery setting. Exquisitely displayed and lovingly tended to, the collection at Buffalo Thunder features its own curator. In addition, every room offers hand-designed furnishings and work by local artists, including Pueblo of Pojoaque Former Governor George Rivera.
The reflective artistry of Buffalo Thunder Resort draws inspiration from within Po’suwae’geh Owingeh traditions of Northern New Mexico as well as the surrounding pueblos.
The contemporary and customary architectural features throughout the resort evolved from past structures dating back hundreds of thousands of years. For the enchantment of your experience, the Buffalo Thunder Resort is filled with numerous displays of pottery, paintings, sculpture, mosaics, weavings, design elements and landscape features.
