Tribal Facts

Pojoaque Pueblo is one of the six Northern Tewa speaking Rio Grande Pueblos.  Archeological studies of the area have dated inhabitation of the historic Pojoaque Pueblo area as early as 500 AD with a large prehistoric population in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.  Pojoaque has always maintained a strong cultural identity and was known by its Tewa speaking neighbors as “Po-suwae-geh” the water drinking or gathering place.

The Pojoaque Tribal Government conforms with the provisions of the 1934 Indian Regulatory Act. It consists of a General Council comprised of all enrolled adult members and a Regular Tribal Council comprised of elected officials. The officials are elected for two-year terms. The Tribal Government is developing ways to invest in its people, infrastructure, resources and the environment. Under the leadership of its Tribal Council, Pojoaque has embarked on an aggressive economic and business development plan to sustain is community. The reservation includes 11,963 acres and current Tribal enrollment at 482 members.
