In 1991-1992, Jemez Mountains Electrical Cooperative (JMEC) built a new electric substation on San Ildefonso Pueblo land in the vicinity of El Rancho, New Mexico. It was determined that the parking lot of a local cantina was used for the perfomances of traditional Hispanic matachine dances and could be elegible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1991, La Communidad, representing the local community and users of the dance site filed suit to stop the construction.
