Pueblo of Pojoaque, Pueblo Art, Feast Day Dance, Casa Escondida B&B

The Pueblo of Pojoaque (Po-wock-ee) is one of the Eight Northern New Mexico Pueblos. It is only 20 minutes travel time from Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast, a Santa Fe area bed & Breakfast, which is located in historic Chimayo, NM (just 35 minutes north of Santa Fe, on the High Road). The Pueblo of Pojoaque, which means the “water drinking place”, is open to the public. The Pueblo’s main attraction is the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum. There you can view exhibits, visit the gift shop and possibly watch an artist demonstration. Next to the Poeh Cultural Center, you will find the Tower Gallery, which features the work of famed Pueblo artist Roxanne Swentzell.  The Pueblo of Pojoaque also hosts various “feast days” throughout the year. The next feast day is on December 12th, 2012. They will celebrate their "Our Lady of Guadalupe" Feast Day. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron saint of Pojoaque Pueblo.  You are invited to this New Mexico event! A feast day will provide the most intimate glimpse of Pueblo religion and culture. These special days celebrate the Pueblos' traditional religious calendar. The celebration consists of religious dances that represent nature, animals and agricultural cycles. The dances are not shows but expressions of ancient religious beliefs. During your Santa Fe vacation, you can also visit The Pueblo of Pojoaque’s Cities of Gold Casino, their visitor center, bowling alley, RV park or the Towa Golf Resort.  The “O’ Eating House” is across from the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum. There, you can try unique Pueblo Nuevo cuisine.  Their Buffalo Thunder Resort showcases a permanent collection of over 200 pieces of authentic Native American art. Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast has delightful rooms available throughout the year. Come shop, discover, dine, test your luck, take-in a traditional Native American Indian Feast Day and more! The staff at Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast looks forward to your visit. Remember that 4 of our 8 guest rooms are pet-friendly. Feel free to bring you furry, best friend with you for your New Mexico trip.
