Welcoming Our Community to Our New Home!

Since 1989, Tewa Women United (TWU) has been serving the Indigenous and land-based communities of Northern New Mexico. Its programs in Environmental, Reproductive, and Gender Justice have been recognized for their positive impacts on youth, adults, parents, and elders throughout the area.

This past year, Tewa Women United moved into a new campus in Española. This beautiful home space, located near TWU’s previous office on Fairview Lane, gives the organization greater capacity to serve and support our communities. The grounds include multiple buildings encircling a beautiful outdoor area lined with cottonwood and fruit trees, and several “grow” boxes of vegetables to provide food throughout the year.

On Wednesday, June 5, TWU welcomed the public into our new space with an open house. Nearly 100 people came and enjoyed touring the campus, meeting program staff, enjoying food from Norma Naranjo’s The Feasting Place, and music and dance from the Hopi Butterfly dance group.

TWU has dedicated this new space to be a home for Healing Justice in diverse forms, including:

TWU’s interim executive director Nathana Bird said, “We can feel the potential for our new home to be a gathering space for Indigenous and land-based people of our region to come together and call forward the vulnerability, authenticity, and deeper healing that is so much needed at this time.”
