Di Wae Powa: Opening Celebration

The Tewa Pottery Advisory Committee and Poeh Cultural Center invite you to join us at the public opening reception for DI WAE POWA and welcome our pottery home. After a century long journey, Tewa Pueblo pottery acquired within the Tewa villages is returning back to Tewa hands. These pots, along with a research gallery, are a ground breaking co-stewardship between the Poeh Cultural Center and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.
 
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2019
11 AM – 4 PM
Opening Reception will include traditional Pueblo food, dances, speakers & pottery demonstrations.
 
The Poeh Cultural Center at the Pueblo of Pojoaque, has finalized an agreement with the National Museum of the American Indian to open a groundbreaking new exhibition and research space that will feature 100 pots of Tewa origin at the Poeh. The exhibition, titled Di Wae Powa: They Came Back, is an historic partnership for both the Poeh and NMAI, because it involves a long-term co-stewardship and display of Tewa pottery that were collected from Tewa Pueblo potters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. And now, those same pots will return home and be reunited with the descendants of their creators. The public exhibit opening is set for October 12 and will include Tewa Pueblo dances, foods, speakers and pottery demonstrations.

Jacob Viarrial Community Day

The Poeh Cultural Center invites you to join us on June 28, 2019 from 10 AM to 1 PM to celebrate Jake Viarrial Day (1946-2004). Viarrial, who served 2 terms as the Governor of Pojoaque, was a vocal advocate for Pueblo legal rights and sovereignty. His assertion of Pueblo sovereignty garnered national attention in 1995 when he challenged the state of New Mexico’s decision to force the Pueblo of Pojoaque to close its casino. Viarrial threatened to install tollbooths along U.S. 84-285 to make up for lost revenue if the state closed the casino. The state backed down.

Senator Nancy Rodriguez (D) District 24, who was a close personal friend of “Uncle Jake”, will be on hand to help celebrate the event which will include stories, music, food, and children’s activities.
