    Pojoaque Pueblo – Native Americans of the Southwest

    Pojoaque is an adaptation of the Tewa Posuwaegeh, meaning “drink-water place.” The word “pueblo” comes from the Spanish for “village.” It refers both to a certain style of Southwest Indian architecture, characterized by multistory, apartmentlike buildings made of adobe, and to the people themselves. Rio Grande pueblos are known as eastern Pueblos; Zuni, Hopi, and sometimes Acoma and Laguna are known as western Pueblos.
