This Abiquiú Area Visitors Guide is provided as a service of Luciente, Inc., a non-profit charity serving Rio Arriba County, NM. 


The telling of the Abiquiú area story relies on:

Lesley Poling-Kempes, Valley of Shining Stone: The Story of Abiquiú

Robert J. Torrez & Robert Trapp, Rio Arriba: A New Mexico County

Malcolm Ebright & Rick Hendricks, The Witches of Abiquiú:
The Governor, The Priest, The Genízaro Indians, and the Devil

Suzanne Forrest, The Preservation of the Village: New Mexico’s Hispanics and the New Deal

John R. & Christine M. Van Ness, eds, Spanish & Mexican Land Grants in New Mexico and Colorado

Much of this website uses source material from the original, print-only version of the Abiquiú  Visitors Guide, developed in 2014 by Luciente with support from local businesses and individuals. Special thanks to Beth Ferguson, who led the development of the 2014 Guide.
