FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DID THIS ALL GET STARTED?
A number of folks have been talking about getting all the Indigenous pop-culture groups all together in one place to celebrate and validate the work that has been done. Native Realities Publishing finally had the time and resources to make this event happen and the rest is (or rather will be) history.
WILL THERE BE COSPLAY OPPORTUNITIES?
Yup. So get your costumes ready! However, we hope that the costumes will be appropriate for the setting and spirit of the Expo (i.e. please, no Tontos or other Indigenous stereotypes). See out Cosplay Policy here.
IS THIS A GOOD EVENT FOR KIDS?
Yup. We will have play areas and numerous activities for the kiddos throughout the Con.
There are no refunds on tickets but they are transferable. There are no refunds for physical items (such as t-shirts, lanyards, books, etc).
All tickets are transferable and, as such, care should be taken with tickets. Once the tickets are redeemed for a badge, they will no longer be valid. Tickets are only valid for the Expo in the year they are purchased.
CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS?
The Indigenous Comic Con and Red Planet BnC do not necessarily have control over every aspect of guests, programming, and/or events as part of the Con. As such, we reserve the right to change or cancel guests, programming and/or events without notice to attendees. Attendees who wish a refund may request one on a case-by-case basis.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PASSES, TICKETS, AND BADGES?
The Pass is the type of Ticket. The Ticket is the physical object you will bring with you (app or printed) in order to get your Badge. The Badge is your entry into the Venues.
WHAT DOES MY PASS INCLUDE?
Depends on your type of badge purchased. A Full Fest pass will allow you into all events and workshops throughout the festival not including any other ticketed events. General Passes (Futurisms/ICC) allow you to all the activites for those pass types. A Daily Pass will get you into a single day's activities and events.
HOW DO I GET MY PASS?
You can pick up your Badge starting at 9am, Wednesday, March 25th at the Innovate ABQ location.
ARE THERE GROUP DISCOUNTS?
We do offer group discounts! Please contact us at: for prices and arrangements. We do not offer any other discounts at this time. However, we have many volunteer opportunities and you can use the email above to inquire about those options.
