Tewa Culture and History

As a complement to our Tewa language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Tewa tribe and their society. Please note that Tewas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Tewa history is interesting and important, but the Tewa Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Tewa link to add.
