The Pueblo of Pojoaque and the Continuous Pathways Foundation will host a Gala Dinner and Auction to benefit the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Nov. 30 at Buffalo Thunder Resort. The event will celebrate 25 years of sustaining and constructing legacies for Native artists and communities.
The Poeh Center has a strong legacy of training Native artists and exhibiting the traditional and the cutting edge in Native arts.
Pueblo of Pojoaque Governor George Rivera was told by many that the center “would never be built” and that it was “not needed.” Despite the discouragement, the Pueblo moved forward to create the Poeh Cultural Center, which opened in 1988.
“The Center’s deep sense of community is built on gathering, sharing, eating, laughing and being,” says Rina Swentzell, a Native American author and scholar who has been involved with the Poeh since its inception.
The gala pays tribute to the place of gathering, sharing and creativity that the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum has provided for the community.
The gala also celebrates the future, as programs are renewed and plans for new growth are made, including breaking ground for new buildings around the museum. The Poeh Center has trained more than 2,000 artists, and each year more than 200 people attend classes there.
