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.

10th Annual Dia de Los Muertos Opening Reception

The 10th Annual Dia de Los Muertos exhibit will open October 26th at the Poeh Cultural Center.

The exhibit, which will feature the works of 21 established New Mexico Hispanic and Native American artists, as well the works of youth and emerging artists. Their work celebrates the rich artistic and spiritual traditions as expressed in jewelry, painting, sculpture and photography.

 

Cara Romero, a photographer, described how the exhibit celebrates the intercultural connections of peoples in the Southwest. “Many of us (Natives from the Southwest) have grandparents that were listed as Mexican citizens. Many of our tribal languages from north and south of the border are the same,” Romero said. “The songs, the art, the dependence on the very same lands and waters.  Our parrot bundles come from there, our shells and the shared culture of Dia de los Muertos reminds us that we were once the same peoples.”

 

This year marks the 10th Annual occasion for the show. “The reason I started the show was to showcase some local young and upcoming artists mainly to give back and remember the ones we have lost in our families, and to bring back the festival into New Mexico culture.” said Toby Morfin, one of the organizers and artists featured in the exhibit.

 

The opening reception for the exhibit will be held October 26th, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at the Poeh Cultural Center in Pojoaque.
