9 original color postcards and 3 copies of "Tom of Cochiti" by Copr. W. R. Walton. Pueblo Chochiti is located in Sandoval County, New Mexico, 22 miles southwest of Santa Fe and about 30' above the Rio Grande. Chochiti means "People from the Mountains." Chochiti people have made traditional pots for centuries, developing styles for different purposes and expressing deep beliefs in their designs. Using traditional techniques, in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, potters have expanded their designs gaining an international market. The Cochiti speak Keres. Keres Children's Learning Center, an independent Keres immersion school, was founded to aid with preservation of their language and culture. The pueblo administers 53,779 acres of reservation land and possesses jurisdiction over the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. The pueblo celebrates the annual feast day for its patron saint, San Buenaventura, on July 14.
