The Pueblo of Jemez (Walatowa, pronounced / he məs/) is a sovereign nation located in Sandoval County, New Mexico, United States approximately 55 miles northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico. As one of 19 New Mexico pueblos, it is a federally recognized tribe with approximately 3,400 Tribal members, with about 58% of that number living in Jemez.

The Pueblo of Jemez has a closed village policy due to the lack of tourism facilities and out of respect for the privacy of those who live there. The village is therefore open to the public only on Feast Days. The Pueblo now chooses to no longer allow these days to be publicized due to over capacity and for the reasons stated above. Visitors should go to the Walatowa Visitor Center which is open year round. Do not wander around the village.
