We wish to recognize that the Museum of International Folk Art sits on unceded ancestral Tewa Land, specifically O’gha Po’oge, now present day Santa Fe.
Even though O’gha Po’oge is no longer the thriving Pueblo village it once was, their descendants, the modern day Tewa people still exist and live in Santa Fe and the local Pueblos of Nambe, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Ohkay Owingeh, Santa Clara and Tesuque. Remembering and honoring place is one of the fundamental aspects of modern day Pueblo people. We do this through ceremonial dance, song, arts, oral tradition and blood memory. The places we honor include the living spirit of O’gha Po’oge as well as all those who came before and who remain present today.
