Since 2002, the Chimayo Cultural Preservation Association has been honoring individual Chimayo residents for their exemplery lives and for their contributions to the community. They stand out as dignified, hardworking and selfless members of their community. They have contributed through their church, volunteer groups, civic organizations and public institutions. In addition to recording their life's story, the honorees are invited to a celebration where they are presented with a certificate of appreciation. Sadly, many Chimayo tesoros have passed on without being honored by our organization. Our community is full of individuals who deserve recognition for being proud and worthy Chimayosos.
