This presentation is a way into the Cochiti Pueblo world told from personal experiences, traditional stories, and teachings. While demonstrating steps in constructing the famous Cochiti drum, Mr. Arnold Herrera tells about tribal political structures, language, ceremony, clans and moiety membership, roles of men, women and children, and modern Pueblo social problems. This journey covers the period from the 1940s to the present.
