Pojoaque Pueblo, New Mexico (Cultural center)
There are lots of really cool adobe buildings in New Mexico. Adobe buildings are made from clay, sand, wood and other natural materials.
"Pojoaque Pueblo is one of the six Northern Tewa speaking Rio Grande Pueblos. Archeological studies of the area have dated inhabitation of the historic Pojoaque Pueblo area as early as 500 AD with a large prehistoric population in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. Pojoaque has always maintained a strong cultural identity and was known by its Tewa speaking neighbors as “Po-suwae-geh” the water drinking or gathering place."
