The Pueblo of Pojoaque is one of six Northern Tewa speaking Rio Grange Pueblos.  Archeological studies of the region have dated inhabitation of the historic Pojoaque Pueblo area as early as 500 A.D. with a large prehistoric population in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.

Pojoaque has always maintained a strong cultural identity and was known by its Tewa speaking neighbors as
"Po-swuwae-geh", the water drinking or gathering place.
