Nang Be Poeh
Nang Be Poeh, or "Our Path”, is a visual introduction for both native and non-native viewers designed to provide an introduction to the environs of Pueblo people and their connectedness to it. This visual, digital lens provides small glimpses of the Pueblo world, with the hope of sharing what it is to “be" – to have an awareness of that which defines the doing, the sharing, the making of beautiful things, that which constitutes Pueblo life.
There is no word for “art” in the Tewa vocabulary. In Dr. Rena Swentzell's (Santa Clara) words: “The closest word in Tewa for a creative activity is “to make” to be in the process of making. It is a matter of making things, anything, well. It is not an outside extra thing. The goal is not the production of objects…..but the living of life.”
