Our taos story
Widely known as one of the most colorful shops in Taos for over 35 years, specializing in handmade Mexican folk art, plus locally crafted jewelry, pottery, prints and paintings, COYOTE MOON is a truly special gallery/gift shop in the heart of Taos’ historic district.
Owner Luis Garcia grew up surrounded by Catholic and Indigenous folk art at his family’s home in Los Angeles and ranch in Mexico. Always artistic, he made block prints in junior high and later studied silversmithing at UNM Taos. He and his wife, Cristina, travel to Mexico several times a year to meet artists in their studios, always visiting both old friends and new artisans. They value the religion, tradition, and culture embedded in the Indigenous art, and every year invite the Taos community to participate in an altar outside their shop honoring the Day of the Dead.
The shop features unique silver jewelry by Luis as well as by Pueblo, Zuni, and Navajo artists. Five local artists also show their original pottery, paintings, and prints at the shop.
COYOTE MOON is thriving today thanks to the continual support of its amazing customer base and to those who are finding it for the first time.
