Welcome to Nanbé Owingeh (The Place of the Rounded Earth)

About Nambé Pueblo

Here at Nanbé, we work to revitalize our language, for language is an important part of our identity. The Nanbé Tewa language is unique, a dialect spoken at our Owingeh. Language expresses and strengthens tradition – of family, of song, of stories, and of dance.

Tradition is important at Nanbé Owingeh. Ceremonies center our people individually and our community as a whole: traditional dances continue, the Kiva is active, and the community is involved in caring for the environment and protecting our natural resources.

Challenges remain, as is the case in many other communities in Indian Country. But, we have a strong foundation and together we shall move forward!
