January Events, Programs, and Exhibitions
Pueblo Pottery Demonstration
with Clarence Cruz
Wednesday, January 8 | FREE
Program runs from 1pm to 4pm
Please join us for our monthly Pueblo Pottery Series, this month featuring Clarence Cruz (Ohkay Owingeh). An assistant professor in the Art Department at UNM, he instructs both undergraduate and graduate students in pottery. He holds a BA and MFA from UNM in Studio Arts.

Honored in 2012 with the "Lifetime Achievement Allan Houser Legacy Award" for Pueblo potters by the SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Cruz's work is traditional, but he employs six different styles and raw materials that he gathers from several sites.

Through his work and continued education, Cruz has had the opportunity to share his knowledge and expertise with both Ohkay Owingeh and neighboring Pueblos, and looks forward to his demonstration at MIAC on January 8.
Canes of Power Film Screening

On January 19, MIAC screens the Emmy award-winning Canes of Power, a Silver Bullet Production. The film tells the story of President Lincoln's gift of ceremonial canes to the 19 Pueblos, and addresses the issue of sovereignty then and now.

Following the screening, Dr. Matthew Martinez (Ohkay Owingeh) - who serves as deputy director at MIAC and was an associate producer of the film - will offer a Q&A session.

This is your last chance to see HNA until June 2021, so stop by and enjoy our celebration of the ground-breaking exhibit.

Admission to MIAC will be reduced accordingly during HNA's closure.
Let's Take A Look!
Wed, January 15 | FREE
12pm to 2pm
MIAC Curators gather in the lobby of the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month awaiting whatever treasures may walk through the door. This is your opportunity to bring a family heirloom, something special from your collection, or a piece you know nothing about. Naturally, curators prefer to examine items from the Southwest, but they will look at anything you bring in for review.

Federal law prohibits curators from "appraising" any items, but they will direct you to appropriate resources.
January Pueblo Feast Days
On January 23, beginning at dawn, the People of San Ildefonso celebrate their annual feast day with traditional Buffalo dances, as well as Deer and Comanche dances. The public is always welcome to attend but please observe proper etiquette, available for review at this link.

Earlier in the month, the transfer of power from current Pueblo officials to new ones is celebrated in most villages, with a detailed list available on the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center's website linked here.
