Tune in monthly for a behind the scenes sneak peek of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Collections with host and Curator of Collections, Amy Cisneros (Isleta).
This month, we celebrate and recognize Pueblo Traditions. Join our Curator of Collections as she highlights a collection of hand-sewn dolls made by Regina Cata. Cata was married into Ohkay Owingeh pueblo. She created an abundance of hand-sewn dolls, each representing traditional dances, or key figures from some of the 19 Pueblos. These finely crafted dolls are near perfect interpretations of dance regalia, and traditional clothing still created and worn by Pueblo people today.

Amy’s work with the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center spans nearly 19 years, and her focus is on caring for nearly 4,000 works in our permanent collection. IPCC’s permanent collection consists of pottery, jewelry, textiles, baskets, regalia, paintings, prints, and a small collection of archaeological material. The works in our collection showcase each of the 19 Pueblos here in New Mexico with a small collection of cultural material from tribes of the Greater Southwest. The ongoing efforts to continually, and carefully preserve each piece for future generations of Pueblo artists, our guests, and researchers are paramount to the mission of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
