Overview
More
In 1988, the Pueblo of Pojoaque established the Poeh Cultural Center as the first permanent tribally owned and operated mechanism for cultural preservation and revitalization within the Pueblo communities of the northern Rio Grande Valley. The facility itself resembles a traditional Pueblo village with its adjacent art studio buildings and outdoor gathering areas. The Center emphasizes arts and cultures of all Pueblo People with focus on the Tewa-speaking Pueblos of Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Clara, Tesuque and Nambe. The Poeh is a place for us to share our Tewa culture with guests from other cultures through our exhibits and events, and guided interpretive tours of our exhibits, facilities and lands.

The Poeh Cultural Centre offers the visitors a glimpse into pueblo life and a beautiful collection of contemporary artists' work, both inside the beautiful reconstructed pueblo buildings and around them on the grounds. There are many beautiful sculptures surrounding you at every turn.

We were looking for the Nambe store and happened upon this small but extremely interesting museum. No charge to enter, but be sure to leave a donation. They had the largest old Indian pottery that we had seen during our trip. Definitely worth a stop!More
