Taos Pueblo's Tiwa Language Program

Over the years Taos Pueblo has developed many programs to assist students with learning our Tiwa language. More recently we have made concentrated efforts to ensure that our program has stable funding, and we are now building a permanent foundation to establish our program and ultimately to ensure the continuation of our Tiwa Language.

Currently, we have classes for students and adults. We are collaborating with the Taos Municipal Schools to bring language instruction into the schools where our students are already present. We have been teaching at Enos Garcia Elementary for 2 years and have started our first school year at the Taos Middle School.

Our adult classes have moved online! We are now offering Tiwa classes via Zoom for enrolled tribal members. Our spring session will begin late January and run through May 2021. To sign up for classes please email us at education@taospueblo.com or call Alice Martinez at 575-758-5819.
