About the Ojo Caliente Restoration Society (OCRS)
The Ojo Caliente Restoration Society (OCRS) was established in October 2008. It is a New Mexico domestic non-profit corporation and was granted tax exempt status pursuant to 501 (c) (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code March 9, 2012.


The OCRS serves as as historical preservation, cultural attache and ambassadors for the Chihene Nde Nation of New Mexico. The membership comprises of members of the Band and are Tribal Elders appointed by the Tribal Council to serve on the Board of Directors of the OCRS. 

Our goals are to create a cultural center to preserve and maintain our Nde (Apache) culture, language, traditions, including protecting our historic and sacred sites.  The OCRS helps organize the Tribal Annual Gathering and coordinates with other Apache spiritual advisors/medicine-men (diiyiin) from other federally recognized tribes in Arizona and New Mexico. We are currently working on a language program and restoring our traditional ceremonies and music.
