I am from Zia Pueblo. My piece is on the Zia Pueblo culture. So first, on the left at the top is a green headboard and it represents the women of Zia Pueblo. Every year we have a feast and every girl that dances always has one. The headboard gets passed onto the next, when a grandma or mom gets done dancing.
The Kachina’s on the left bottom are very traditional and very sacred to the Native Americans. In the middle is a Kachina that is well known from a different tribe. The other Kachina that is hiding is Zia’s Pueblo Kachina. I put it to the side because to this day everything that is ours is very sacred and I want to keep it like that.
The Zia sun symbol represents us (Zia Pueblo). The bottom is mountains and black trees black covering the mountains. I cherish the mountains and it’s very sacred to Zia Pueblo. Two different clouds one is the three bubble cloud; and that’s how we usually draw our clouds. I put the other one there too because that’s how most of our eyes see clouds. In the middle there’s a lighting that separates it. I put it like that because lighting usually does that to things at the bottom of the lightning is an arrowhead. The arrowhead shows that I’m protected as I’m wearing it. Arrowheads are also very sacred and traditional. I wanted to share my piece to everyone so thank you for everyone who took the time to read this.
