Ohkay Owingeh (formerly San Juan Pueblo). English Pronunciation: "O-keh 0-weeng-eh" Traditional Name: Ohkay Owingeh The Ohkay Owingeh people have a complex and fascinating cultural history. They divide the physical world into three parts: the village and surrounding land, which is the realm of the women, the second circle is comprised of the hills and mesa surrounding the first circle and is the realm of both men and women: the third circle emcompasses all beyond the second and is the world of hunting and protection form a hostile outside world, and this is the exclusive realm of the men. All ceremonies and dances are centered on this division of influences and relate to various aspects of daily and seasonal life. Great importance is placed upon the teaching of responsibility. Although many Ohkay Owingeh people work outside the Pueblos, most of them return for ritual occasions and ceremonies. Their language is Tewa.

Naranjo-Garcia, Sharon – Melon Jar with 24 Ribs

haron Naranjo Garcia (b. 1951) is a granddaughter of Christina Naranjo.  She learned to make pottery from her grandmother and is known for her traditional style of pottery. This is a striking melon jar with 24 carved ribs.  The jar has a graceful shape with the ribs extending up to the short neck.  The difficulty in this jar is that the entire surface is fully polished, even the area between the ribs!  The jar has a rich red coloration from the firing.  Interestingly, it is always more difficult to fire a red jar than a black one!  The potter must be more careful as they fire the red pieces to avoid discoloration.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay.
