Santa Fe Playhouse acknowledges the breath of those that came before us. The place we call Santa Fe is recognized and known as Oga Po’geh, meaning White Shell Water Place. This is the land of the Northern and Southern Tewa (often identified as Tanos). We recognize that this land is one piece of a larger, boundless terrain for Indigenous peoples: the Nambe Pueblo; the Tewa; and the Jicarilla Apache, the Diné (Navajo), Cochiti, Taos, and Hopi Pueblos.
This acknowledgment does not take the place of authentic relationships with Indigenous communities; it serves as a first step in honoring the land and the people.
