Nambé (Nambe O-Ween-Ge)

One of the Tewa-speaking people of northern New Mexico, Nambé Pueblo is nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains 20 miles north of Santa Fe. Settled in the early 14th century, Nambé Pueblo was historically known for its robust agriculture and the production of traditional textiles and pottery. There has been a recent renaissance in traditional arts and crafts, with more and more Nambé artists learning the traditional forms and producing high-quality work. Potters are creating handcrafted pots with black-on-black and white-on-red designs similar to the work of Taos and Picuris Pueblos. Weavers have also revived the production of traditional kilts and cotton belts.
