Born from necessity in the heart of Indian Country – New Mexico, USA – 1680PR’s authentic American Indian blood runs deep. A recognized brand name in professional PR services, the “PR” in 1680PR was actually not intended to reference the agency’s area of practice – it is a reverent homage to the Great Pueblo Revolt of 1680 – a history that resonates today in the agency’s soul.
Emerging from humble beginnings serving as an informal Think Tank consultancy to several Native American tribes and enterprises, non-profit organizations, established visual fine artists, high-profile personalities, and startup interests, 1680PR quickly evolved into a specialized professional practice, providing expert advice in the particular fields of Public Relations and Strategic Marketing: positioning, branding, and imaging.
Our leadership’s early adoption of the first social media platforms propelled 1680PR into the national arena, amassing invitations for appearances at tastemaker events, such as South by Southwest (SXSW), earning fraternal status among a select group of top-ranked social influencers: Marsha Collier, Ekaterina Walter, Allison Aldridge-Saur, Michele Price, Mack Collier, Valeria Maltoni, Leigh Durst, and others.
Meeting with unprecedented early-stage success, some of our first clients include Albuquerque Studios (North America’s largest independent feature film facility: Breaking Bad, Fright Night, Due Date, Book of Eli, Marvel’s The Avengers), New Mexico Tourism Department, New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (the only Cabinet-level department in the United States solely addressing Native Americans), several New Mexico Cabinet Secretaries, Heritage Hotels and Resorts (lifestyle-branded luxury resort and hotel properties), Summer Sun Winter Moon feature documentary film, a high-end nightclub brand, United States Senator and Presidential Candidate Mike Gravel…and a GRAMMY®-winning music group.
