OUR HISTORY &
YOUR DESTINATION

We hope to see you soon!

Come for the man food and entertainment venues and fall in love with the traditional culture and arts. Pojoaque is not only a tourism destination but a local community made of Native American  and Spanish people dating back centuries.

Pojoaque or “Po-suwae-geh Owingeh” meaning water gathering place.

We continue our traditions and practice our culture in these modern times. For those things that have been lost or forgotten, we attempt to bring them back and further strengthen the foundation of who we are and where we come from. We learn and adapt; accomplish and progress.

Changing Exhibitions | Hands-On Education | Outreach Programs

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 Poeh 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. Website Link
