Re-creating a more vital Pueblo center and reinvigorating cultural heritage traditions through the rehabilitation of the historic Pueblo core was this project's focus. The Pueblo core is the spiritual, social and cultural center of the Pueblo. Community members were trained in traditional building techniques and played a key role in rebuilding the houses and community spaces. The project also re-appropriated preservation practices and treatment of the Pueblo's cultural resources from federal guidelines to what is suitable for Ohkay Owingeh.
