Like all Tewa Pueblos of Northern New Mexico, The Pueblo of Pojoaque (Po’su wae geh) was systematically stripped of its heritage, culture and traditions by European contact in the sixteenth century. The Pueblo of Pojoaque is revitalizing their traditions in part through the efforts of the Center’s mission to teach their native language, traditional song and dance, and material culture.
Since its inception, the Center’s mission has been to Support the future of Pueblo people by: Teaching the arts, Collecting great works of art, and Promoting public under-standing of, and respect for, Pueblo history and culture.
Tewa is the traditional language and the culture of six of New Mexico’s eight northern Pueblos. In Tewa, “means pathway”. The Center is a living pathway where tradition travels between the past and the present and leads into the future, ensuring further creativity. In this role, the Center embodies the essence of what it means to be Tewa — to be Pueblo — in a context of cultural continuity.
