Buwah (Boo-waah) our sacred traditional bread. H.O.P.E. is committed to ensuring that the processes of Buwah making is kept alive with our women. This process has not been practiced since the early 1900’s and thanks to the efforts of H.O.P.E. ‘s founder Marian Naranjo and Flowering Tree’s Roxanne Swentzell this ancestral tradition is flourishing.

Once a month, since April 2019,

Since April 2019, over 60 Tewa Women have come together
to learn and make Buwah in our Buwah Tewha
We have brought back the tradition of planting and harvesting our blue corn to make Buwah to complete the lifeway.
