Click here to book a hotel room at a special conference rate of $149 per night, single or double, for three nights, November 12, 13, and 14, 2017, which can be extended two days before and two days after the conference at the same rate as long as the hotel’s occupancy rate is less than 80%. Persons planning on attending the Jemez pueblo ceremony on Sunday morning, November 12th, will probably need to check into Tamaya on Saturday, November 11th. They are advised to make hotel reservations early to get the discounted rate. A room-mate list will be opened for the opportunity to save 50% off of the accommodation costs for those who are available to share their rooms. Persons who are interested in sharing a room should send a personal email to firstname.lastname@example.org, one of the conference co-organizers. Each time a new name is added to the potential roommate sharing list, a new email will go out to all persons on the list. Neither Jay R. Feierman nor the conference is responsible for making room sharing arrangements.
Tamaya is about 45 minutes south of Santa Fe and 30 minutes north of Albuquerque by private vehicle. Tamaya is a New Mexico pueblo-style resort that is a joint venture between the Hyatt Regency and the Santa Ana tribe on whose land the Tamaya is built. The word Tamaya means “in the center” in the Keresan tribal language. The setting of Tamaya is isolated, beautiful, peaceful, and spiritual with the 10,600 foot Sandia mountain in the background. Although non-pueblo tribal members are not allowed in any of the New Mexico consecrated religious kivas that are still in use, there is an above-ground, kiva-style round building at the Tamaya where interested persons staying at Tamaya can learn about the Santa Ana pueblo’s culture and rituals by arrangement from a Santa Ana tribal member.
All meals can be taken at the Santa Ana Cafe or the Rio Grande Lounge within in the Tamaya. For a very special meal, the Corn Maiden restaurant.
Arrival and departure days are fexible considering personal schedules and the convenience to attend the Jemez pueblo Ceremony on Sunday morning or visit Santa Fe after the conference. After returning to Tamaya from the Jemez pueblo Sunday afternoon and having lunch, the first academic session will be held on Sunday 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Most flights from Europe to New Mexico, which always require connecting flights in the USA, arrive in the evening. So for persons coming from Europe who want to attend the Jemez pueblo ceremony on Sunday, check in at the hotel would probably need to be on Saturday night.
The conference will end on Wednesday, November 15th at noon. Check-in for the conference will be in Tamaya on Saturday, November 11th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm and on Sunday, November 12th from 3:00 – 5:00 pm in the hotel lobby near the conference rooms.
