Workshop Description:
The art of weaving is a very ancient tradition among the Pueblos of the Southwest. It is a tradition that pre-dates pottery by several centuries. Sadly, it is one of the art forms that has experienced a sharp decline since the colonization of Pueblo communities. Despite this fact, Pueblo textiles are still very much an integral part of Pueblo culture and identity as they make up the traditional regalia and dress for religious and other special occasions. Louis will teach students the fundamental aspects needed for individuals to understand the history and the ever evolving aspects of Pueblo textile weaving. Students will be able to integrate what they have learned into future works of their own under the guidance of this truly gifted Pueblo weaver.

BIO:
Louie García is a Tiwa/Piro Pueblo weaver whose family originates from southern New Mexico in the Las Cruces/El Paso areas. He is a self-taught weaver as many other Pueblo weavers before him. Having been brought up by his grandfather, García learned from a young age the importance of maintaining Pueblo tradition and cultural values. These teachings have inspired him to offer these classes in the hopes of revitalizing the art of Pueblo weaving and encouraging a new generation of Pueblo weavers.

BIO
Pam Lujan- Hauer is a member of the Taos Pueblo Tribe of New Mexico. She studied pottery making at the Institute of American Indian Arts and was inspired and taught by her great aunts Josephine Ortiz and Anita Lujan who are highly regarded as traditional Indian pueblo potters.

All of Pam's pottery is coil built from clays, which she digs and processes herself. Her traditional pottery is made from micaceous clay, which contains mica chips and is native to northern New Mexico. This clay is famous for its durability and is still used to build cooking pots and water jars. Her contemporary Indian pottery is made from native red and white clays. It is decorated with design elements that evolved in the Middle Rio Grande region using clay slips enhanced with minerals. Her traditional pottery is pit fired while her contemporary pieces are pit or kiln fired.

Pam attended the Institute of American Indian Arts from 1975 through 1976. She began pottery making full time in 1989 and has since participated in various Indian art shows. She has been demonstrating pottery making at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and at the New Mexico State Fair Indian Village since 1990. Pam also demonstrates her skills periodically at the Maxwell Museum in Albuquerque and the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe. She taught Indian pottery courses at the University of New Mexico in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and has been awarded several artist residencies at various New Mexico schools. Other teaching experiences include work shops through the Senior Arts program, the Working Classroom and the Arizona Archeological and Historical Society. She has also thought at the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute's Upward Bound program in 2001, 2002 and 2003, annual children's workshops through the Harwood Art Center and at the Maxwell Museum's summer programs.

Pam is currently a presenter for the New Mexico Humanities Council "Chautauqua" program. Her presentation is titled 'The History of Pueblo Pottery".
