+Mental Health Monday+ Be Resilient

DEVELOP & PRACTICE SELF-COMPASSION

• Self-compassion is a skill that takes time to develop, especially when we’re used to negative self-talk. Practicing self-compassion can help lower depression, anxiety & stress.

ADVANCE YOUR PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS

• Come up with a solution to a problem that can help you feel more in control. The first step to problem solving is understanding the root cause. Then, an effective way to build your problem solving skills is to make a quick list of potential solutions.

EAT WELL

• Eat foods that help you feel good, both physically and mentally. Eating with this mindset can help boost resilience. Show your body kindness with the foods that you choose.

The Pueblo of Pojoaque is doing their part to protect the community from COVID-19.

Chief M. Freddie Trujillo received his second COVID-19 vaccination. Additional EOC staff, front line workers and others within the Police Department are scheduled in the near future.

We want to thank and acknowledge the Indian Health Services of Santa Fe for all they are doing to help protect our indigenous communities.

Wellness Wednesday + Healthy Cycles

Health is a cycle and includes many dimensions.

- Health Habits: Daily movements to help with circulation and joint movement. Routines set up for staying hydrated and starting your metabolism each morning when you awake. Your body will thank you.

- Economic Habits: Personal finances from a three week, a three month, and three year perspective, can be a helpful exercise. Set aside time for income goals, and your time will be rewarded. It feels great to be intentional with our spending, and reach our full giving potential.

- Relationship Habits: As part of complex social structures, our actions impact our society at large, our tribal community, and our close personal circles. Believe in others, so they will believe in you.

“Becoming Human”
BY SIMON J. ORTIZ
(Acoma Pueblo)

“We are given permission
by the responsibility we accept
and carry out. Nothing more,
nothing less.
                       
People are not born.
They are made when they become
human beings within ritual,
tradition, purpose, responsibility.

Therefore, as humans, this we do:
Sun Father begins red
in the east.
Stand and be humble.
Red through trees,
moments changing each instant
into the next change,
each change tied to the next.
To be human is to have
a sense of being within self.

Sun. Red. Trees.
Our hearts’ eyes seeing
inward and outward, accepting:
Stand and be humble.”

Simon Ortiz, excerpt from "Becoming Human" from his book, After and Before the Lightning. Copyright ©  by Simon Ortiz.  Reprinted by permission of University of Arizona Press.

ACTION ALERT

Oak Flat is Apache holy ground. The Trump administration is turning over Oak Flat (in southeast Arizona) to mining giant Rio Tinto 5 days before Biden takes office, on January 15. This destruction is an act of cultural genocide.

Aimee Jorjani is the chairwoman of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, an independent federal agency. She has a chance to refuse to sign off on the Programmatic Agreement that agrees to the destruction of Oak Flat. Let's all ask that she say NO. The Tribes have made it clear there is no mitigation for this.
EMAIL: [email protected]
PHONE: +1 (202) 517-0200

Please contact Ms. Jorjani ASAP.

Mental Health Monday. + Start Fresh

TAKE A MINUTE TODAY TO CONSIDER LIFE’S PURPOSE

• Having a purpose in life  has a more powerful impact on decreasing a person’s risks. It doesn’t matter what your life’s purpose is, what matters is that you feel you have one.

PREPARE TO FAIL. IT’S PART OF SUCCEEDING

• The key is to accept failure as a part of the process. Expect that at some point you will mess up. Just get back to taking steps toward your goal, and don’t beat yourself up.

REDEFINE EXERCISE: MOVE A LITTLE BIT & OFTEN

• Reframe what you think of as exercise. Take the stairs. Dance while you do the dishes. These little bursts of movement throughout the day will add up.

To kick off 2021, we are launching a virtual tour of our current exhibition, Diego Romero vs. the End of Art!

Diego Romero vs. the End of Art is a dynamic exploration of a Cochiti Pueblo artist’s journey through life as depicted through his work. For decades, California-born Cochiti potter Diego Romero has created renowned historical and autobiographical artworks. Acclaimed for his neo-Mimbres pottery illustrating Pueblo Indian history, his father’s Korean War stories, and his relationships with women, family, substances and art, Romero’s work lays bare the life of one Native artist and Native history.

Until we are able to reopen, visit with Diego Romero’s stunning ceramics from the comfort and safety of your home.

Face Mask Friday

Wash your masks often: It’s best to have several masks, so you always have a clean one ready. Wash cloth masks in the washing machine, just as you’d wash your clothes.

Masks & more: Wearing a face mask works best when combined with other safety measures. Continue to stay at least 6 feet from others, wash your hands often and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. These simple steps can go a long way toward keeping you, your family—and everyone around you—safe.

Wellness Wednesday + Intentional Living

As we transition into a new year, it is tradition to take stock of what we will carry with us moving forward, as well as what will be left behind.

* The possibilities are endless when it comes to setting intentions - there is no such thing as having too many. Creating one, or making a written list forces you to be present, forgiving yourself from the past.

* Setting your intention, your subconscious has ways to ensure that opportunities to practice that intention appear in small and big ways. A positive intention leads to a positive attitude.

* Clear intentions recognize the fact that everything you are looking for out there is already within you and that all you have to do is align your actions with it to produce the outcome you seek.

+Mental Health Monday+
Overcoming Loneliness

Reflecting on friends and family during this holiday season is likely to intensify those feelings of isolation.

• Make an effort to make contact; Whether it is a simple phone call or a video chat, share a conversation.

• Check in with others. Rather than doomscrolling, send a kind message to someone you miss. They likely miss you, too.

• Stay occupied. Empty time can move slowly. An occupied and engaged mind is less likely to dwell on the loneliness.

You can help by asking your senators and representatives to not cut the proposed $1.1 billion from victim service grants and to support the Omnibus bill which introduces some key changes, referred to as the #VOCAFix. We appreciate your support!

Wellness Wednesday

HOLIDAY SELF-CARE:

As we move through the Holiday season, take some time to consider a few wellness ideas:

Life-Work Balance. If things feel busy, remember time away from work and screens is important and energizing.

- Plan time for sending emails, phone calls, and text messages.

- Schedule downtime. Adding it to a calendar can prompt a helpful reminder.

- Socialize responsibly. Plan safely-distanced walks outside, or drop a gift to a neighbor.

Cleansing and letting go is an act of self-care. Notice things that don’t fit or feel useful in your space — it could be time for those things to find a new home.

- Concentrate on one room or one space at a time.

- Spread out and set completion dates, doing so in phases helps to keep from feeling overwhelmed.

- Create a declutter challenge that feels like a game and celebrate when completed!

Erik Fender Pottery Demo

Erik Sunbird Fender (Than Tsidéh) was born in 1970. At age 10, Erik began to learn the art of pottery from his mother and his grandmother. Maria Martinez was his great grandmother’s sister, and she is credited with helping to preserve traditional techniques as more ready-made materials became available.

Erik’s work has received numerous awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Eight Northern Pueblo shows over the years.

In 2016, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) began a community loans program to establish working partnerships with tribal museums and cultural centers.

We filmed this session at the Poeh Cultural Center using social distancing protocols. This video demonstration shows Erik applying slip and burnishing a pot with his polishing stone, before painting his intricate designs with his own hand made brushes.

Our mission as a cultural center is to emphasize arts and cultures of all Pueblo People with focus on the Tewa-speaking Pueblos of Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, Ohkay-Owingeh, Santa Clara, Tesuque and Nambe.

Connections

Schedule time with family, friends & colleagues on Zoom on a regular basis. We’ve got some suggestions for Interactive Games.

• It Lightens Your Mood & Makes You Happier.
• It’s Good For Your Brain Health & Lowers Risks Of Memory Loss.
• Promotes a sense of safety, belonging & security.
• Allows you to confide in others & let others confide in you.
_______________________________
Interactive Games To Play On Zoom

20 Questions

You ask each member of your group 20 creative questions. No matter how well you know each other, there are bound to be a few surprises.

Charades

Split your group into two teams and choose your words and phrases. The person who’s acting out the charade uses the Zoom “spotlight” feature, and their team has one minute to figure out the phrase.

Two Truths & A Lie

Jot down two real facts about you and one that is totally fake. Read them to your opponent and they have to guess which one is the lie.

Most Likely To …

Come up with questions like, "Who’s most likely to do something embarrassing in public?” Take turns asking questions. Whoever gets the most votes on a question has to drink or eat something weird from their kitchen.
