Poeh Arts Faculty and Student Showwelcome-300x300

December 19, 2003 – March 26, 2004

The nature of Pueblo creativity is where explicitness, or verbal teaching, is not as important as being aware, watching, feeling, capability and doing. The words of a Pueblo woman who talked about pottery making are important here, “First of all, I would feed cornmeal of all colors to the butterflies, because they know how to make themselves beautiful.”  Butterflies naturally breathe the po-wa-ha and know, without intense contemplation, how to be beautiful. They create beauty not because it is the most easy but the most essential thing to do.
