What's in our name?
It all started here—over 300 years ago...

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 is actually not intended to reference the agency’s area of practice—it is a reverent homage to the Pueblo Revolt of 1680—a history that resonates today in the agency’s soul.

Emerging from humble beginnings as an informal Think Tank consultancy to several Native American tribes and enterprises, New Mexico state government, 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, Media Relations, and Digital Communications.

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), and earning fraternal status among a select group of top-ranked social influencers.

Meeting with unprecedented early-stage success, some of our first clients represent an impressive and diverse scope of projects:

  • Albuquerque Studios (Breaking BadFright Night, Due Date, The Book of EliLet Me In, Marvel’s The Avengers)
  • Women Innovate Mobile (female-focused startup accelerator)
  • New Mexico Tourism Department (including International Tourism)
  • Michael Jackson’s final concert tour stakeholders (resulting in production and release of Michael Jackson’s This Is It feature film)
  • New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (the only Cabinet-level department in the United States solely addressing Native Americans) and multiple Governor’s Cabinets and Cabinet Secretaries
  • Heritage Hotels and Resorts (lifestyle-branded luxury resort and hotel properties)
  • Laura Smalls’ New York Fashion Week Show
  • Levo League

Today, 1680PR has expanded its footprint to Los Angeles, Houston, and America’s “Third Coast” where the industries of Music Entertainment, Professional Sports, Technology, and Healthcare converge: Nashville, Tennessee, becoming the only national agency that is truly Native American-owned and operated.

As a response to our clients’ need for comprehensive Business Strategy and Management Consultation, we created a specialized consulting team comprised of global Business talents and Corporate change agents, leveraging the Public Relations and modern Marketing expertise of 1680PR to fuel an aggressive diversification into several multinational industries (Global EPC, Industrial and Commercial Construction, Downstream Petrochemical, BioPharma, Healthcare, Nanomaterials, Industrial Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Cannabis / Hemp / CBD, and more), while expanding our nationwide scope of work in Native American Enterprises and Sovereign Government Affairs, and other B2B, B2C, and B2E (Business to Employee) verticals.

An intellectually mighty hybrid of Management Consultancy and Marketing Agency, we are supremely positioned to bring a full suite of augmented services to our clients’ respective tables:

  • Business Strategy and Management Consultation for Private Equity Firms, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI Funds), Startup Ventures, and Non-Profits
  • Diversity and Inclusion Consultation / Corporate Training
  • Cultural Sensitivity / Awareness Training for Executives and Sales Teams
  • Government Relations
  • Outsourced Marketing
  • Communications Training for Executives, EPC Managers, and others managing and negotiating Stakeholder / Investor relationships and reporting

We think differently. We are built differently. Our clients tend to like that.

With limitless vision and a touch of badassery, our work culture and brain trust remain true to 1680PR’s inherent roots: authentic American-Indian values, lifeways, and traditions.

People Actually Brag About Working With Us

We enjoy being the agency that our clients, trade associates, and strategic partners actually feel good about working with…and sometimes they even brag about it.


We believe in a “committed relationship” with our clients—real partnerships create their own success. We will not be your “vendor” or “service provider.” We will be your “Communications Partner.”


We aren’t afraid of challenges or crises. We never blink.


We are not a “cheat sheet.” We don’t give answers unless we may explore the questions.


A positive communications exchange is a vital part of our own process. We operate on a system that breaks down without feedback.


Don’t try to do our work for us. You hired us to do things that you cannot.


We do not present unpaid pitches. Our global network of key contacts—rather, “relationship equity”—boundless intellectual creativity, and leading-edge technology resources are our most valuable assets; we will not hand out these resources for free.
