SPRING 2020

The Poeh Culture Center is currently enrolling students for the Spring 2020 Semester classes.

Class sizes are limited, so be sure to register now if you’d like to participate. Courses are open to Native American students only. Classes share cultural knowledge and we respect the students and instructors space to support cultural traditions.

All classes are held on the Poeh Cultural Center studios at the Pueblo of Pojoaque.

Register by downloading application or registering online. Registration is only complete when class fees are made over the phone by credit card at (505) 455-5041 or in person with credit card, cash or check at the Poeh Gift Shop.
