City wants more communication for Santa Fe Indian School
The city council in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is drawing up a memorandum of understanding in hopes of improving communication about the Santa Fe Indian School.

The city has not had a say in changes going on at the school campus. In 2008, the All Indian Pueblo Council razed over a dozen buildings, most dating to the late 1800s and early 1900s, and is now planning to demolish the famed Paolo Soleri Amphitheater.

The 19 Pueblos in New Mexico own and operate the school, which is located on trust land. But the city provides water and sewer service to the campus.

A resolution passed by the city council asks the school and the tribes to reconsider the decision to raze the venue, which spawned a Facebook group with over 4,000 fans.
