LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) - A northern New Mexico Native American tribe is seeking to raise money toward an adobe restoration project on their 800-year-old pueblo.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports (https://goo.gl/613g7g ) Ohkay Owingeh (oh-KAY oh-WIHN-gay) Pueblo is hoping to pull together $3.5 million to restore adobe homes on the historic village north of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Owe’neh Bupingeh Plaza Restoration Project is an $11.5 million revitalization project that has already breathed new life into the heart of the community.

Since 2005, the Ohkay Owingeh Housing Authority has restored 34 of the adobe structures with federal funding. All of the restored buildings line the Pueblo’s four main squares.

Ohkay Owingeh is included on the National Register of Historic Places and included in the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
