Ohkay Owingeh recognizes the need to increase the level of fluency among the community when it comes to the Tewa Language. The Ohkay Owingeh Tewa Language Program offers weekly classes three times a week for 2-3 hours a session to address the need to increase the Tewa Language being spoken throughoutthe community. Average nightly attendance per class ranges from 10-15 community members. The classes cover a variety of subjects as well as retreat trips to culturally relevant locations.

Community members who attend classes have increased their fluency with two community members becoming fluent Tewa speakers in less than a year.


The Tewa language department invites all members of Ohkay Owingeh to come attend our classes. Our classes are open to all ages and to anyone who is interested in learning Tewa. Read More
