The Jicarilla Apache Nation of New Mexico is looking to capitalize on its reputation as a hotbed for unidentified flying objects or UFOs.

The reservation is home a large number of UFO sightings. Tribal members and other people have long reported seeing unusual objects in the skies.

“It’s not just a fairy tale,” 78-year-old tribal member Geraldine Julian told The Santa Fe New Mexican. “All the things are true, and I believe every last one of them, too, because I’ve seen it myself.”

Then there's the Dulce Base. Believers say there is a secret alien-human facility underneath the Archuleta Mesa near Dulce, the tribe's headquarters.

The tribe's gaming facility, the Wild Horse Casino, offers a prime view of the mesa and employee Chelse Anderson told the paper that people specifically ask for certain rooms to look at it. The hotel is already fully booked for the Dulce Base UFO Conference this Saturday.

Although President Ty Vicenti has offered a welcome message for believers, the event is being put on by a group called Apache Indigenous Defenders Inc., a non-profit on the reservation.
