Chimayo: The village with healing powers
from By Heather Linderfelt
Nestled away among the badlands of New Mexico, 28 miles north of Santa Fe, sits the little village of Chimayo. This community of artists, chile farmers and deeply religious people live in an oasis of fertile soil surrounded by the dry high desert of Northern New Mexico. Chimayo ("tsi-mayoh") is named after one of the four hills in that area that were sacred to the Tewa Pueblo Indians, and it is one of the most important Catholic pilgrimages in the United States.
