Learn about petroglyphs and Zia traditions with Zia leader and artist Peter Pino
in advance of his workshop at Ah Haa School for the Arts on May 17th
called “Introductory Petrogylph Making”. Former governor of the Pueblo of Zia, Peter has been a Tribal Council member since 1967. Since 1977, he has served as the tribal administrator and treasurer. Peter is a traditional spiritual leader, holding a lifetime appointment as one of the tribe's Keeper of Songs. He is also a traditional craftsman who tans deer hides and makes moccasins, bows, arrows, digging sticks, rabbit sticks, and bone tools, using the same techniques employed by his Puebloan ancestors. His archaeological interests have led him to committee and board commitments with Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and Mesa Verde National Park.
