Artist Christine McHorse

I'd like to share this beautiful video of renowned micaceous potter Christine McHorse that was created by Dylan McLaughlin for the Buffalo Thunder Art Collection. We were able to visit her studio in Santa Fe and have a nice conversation about her artwork. She has touched so many people in this community and we honor her grace that we even felt even through her work. Our heartfelt condolences. - Karl Duncan, Executive Director, Poeh Cultural Center.

Wellness Wednesday + Buffalo Tamales

Slide 1:

“Our Pueblo ancestors were not confined by Western concepts such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To honor Pueblo foodways, we organize recipes according to ingredient and/or use. The plants included in this recipe are indigenous to the southwestern United States; however, the majority of them can be found in grocery stores. This recipe has been served at numerous potlucks held by Flowering Tree Permaculture Institute. At those gatherings, we savor this food and enjoy the company of those who created it. We hope you will do the same.”

Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo)

Our Path: Our Mission
A gathering place for the respectful sustaining of Tewa traditions through being, doing and sharing.

Here, at the Poeh, old rhythms of life and ways of making beauty are still important. People bring beauty to the world on a pathway of being, doing and sharing called the Poeh.

In the Tewa Pueblo language Poeh translates to “path” and the Poeh Cultural Center embodies that pathway, the essence of what it means to be a Tewa person – to be Pueblo.

Conservation + Wellness Wednesday

The Pueblo of Pojoaque Bison Program started in 1994 with four bison and under three acres of land. Now the herd has over 5400 acres and nearly 100 head – including a white bison. Governor Joe Talachy says: “The Bison and Indigenous Peoples across North America have been inextricably linked for millennia. Bison have sustained us as food, shelter, and clothing, and they have a deep cultural and spiritual significance.”

Bison only migrated near New Mexico during the winter months. Bison existed outside the Tewa world, so each Pueblo would send a small party of hunters out to the plains to hunt them. They would work together with other Tribes to harvest enough Bison to sustain each group’s community. Every part of the Bison was utilized so that no part was wasted.

Have you ever seen a Bison in person? What was that experience like?

Mental Health Monday+ Engagement & Self-Awareness

ENGAGE YOUR MIND

• Captivating your mind in new ways helps distract you from the daily noise in your head, help you find new ways to build confidence and feel healthy.

FOCUS ON KINDNESS

• Your oxytocin, the hormone of connectedness, rises, your heart rate slows and you feel more benevolent, which makes you healthier and happier.

BECOME MORE SELF-AWARE

• Your system should help you feel in control without overwhelming you. If you are forgetful, a lot of reminders might help. Find your own way to be expressive and creative.

Opportunity for Native Communities ✨🌞

ATTENTION INDIGENOUS ENTREPRENEURS:

Creative Startups is excited to partner on two new initiatives to support Indigenous creative entrepreneurs in the region:

1) Applications are open now through March 7th for our new LABS Pre-Accelerator in partnership with the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. This online intensive is designed to support New Mexico-based Native creatives with their cultural or creative business and reaching new customers. For more information please visit: https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/NMB3VT

2) Later this year we will be expanding our Indigenous entrepreneurship programs throughout New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. In order to support this work we are looking to hire a Native American Entrepreneurship Program Manager. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis till the role is filled.

If you have questions about either of these two opportunities, please contact Alice Loy at [email protected]

Wellness Wednesday + Practicing Reciprocity

Reciprocity exists and is practiced in every culture around the world. We are taught that when someone does something for you, you should do something for them in return.

Many pueblos dance the Deer Dance around this time every year. It is danced to pay respect to the deer for giving up its life so the community can survive. There is also a something special that happens during the last dance of the day. At the end of the last dance, the deer dancers scatter in every direction because women are chasing them! If a woman catches a deer dancer, then she is rewarded with deer meat. In return, she feeds the deer a meal at her house and gives him a basket with an assortment of items. This ancient tradition of reciprocity that is still practiced to this day. What is one way that you could practice reciprocity in your community?

+Mental Health Monday+ Be Prepared

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR POSITIVES

• What are your strengths, and the things you like about yourself that will help you succeed? Asking yourself these things, and being mindful of exactly that in trying times can keep you motivated.

EXPLORE WHAT IS MOST MEANINGFUL TO YOU

• You are more likely to be successful at something when you are passionate about doing it or can see the benefit of the change. Do your goals now bring you closer to your greater vision for the future?

TAKE TIME TO RECHARGE

• We all need down time to relax and rejuvenate ourselves in order to avoid burnout. Remember to take time to disconnect from life’s stressors and engage in meaningful activities.

“I used a Zia symbol in this drawing because of its symbolism. The Zia has 16 rays, four in every direction. Each represents various aspects of life. The center is a circle which of course represents the circle of life. I decided to put the Covid-19 virus in the center because that is life for now. The Zia is embellished with roadrunners. Roadrunners are extraordinary birds.”

Tonic for the Times hired a documentary film crew to go throughout New Mexico and interview frontline workers, about how hard they're working, what the days are like, that they essentially never leave the hospital in their minds.

They wanted to celebrate such workers, and any funds raised through the virtual concert will go to the Poeh Cultural Center which then, in turn, will distribute micro grants between $250-$700 to needy New Mexicans both on a first-come-first-served basis and by need.

Please Share & Support this initiative, and tune in Tomorrow! THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make this happen.

1. ) “Throughout our history, we as native peoples, have been resilient and always cared for each other. By simply wearing a mask properly and stepping up for vaccination we can UNITE in the effort to halt the virus from spreading across our tribal communities and elsewhere. Then we can once again gather together for our traditional and community traditions."
