A neat little cultural centre for a band which has been here since 1680. They have their youth perform traditional dances every weekend. Be sure to schedule an hour before or after the dances to see all of it.

This museum is not housed in the Alderette-Candelaria House. It is currently part of a community center in the middle of the reservation. If you're coming to this area just for the museum don't bother. However, if you are coming for all the other attractions in the area you can actually make a good half day excursion and not be...
