Dawn Butterfly Spirit

Carpio Bernal Jr. defied the odds and created Dawn Butterfly Café, a beautiful oasis honoring his sister’s memory in Taos Pueblo — despite the traditional no electricity or running water rule of this sacred UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Historic Landmark.

See how the RDC Tribal Economic Diversity Fund award helped secure the equipment needed to provide sustenance and beauty to visitors and residents of Taos Pueblo.
