Acoma Laguna Pottery

Acoma Laguna Pottery

The Acoma Pueblo of New Mexico has a unique pottery tradition due to the distinctive clay found in the region and intricate geometric black-on-white painting styles. Laguna pottery shares similarities to Acoma pottery because the two cultures are related ethnic groups with a shared prehistory, language, and close location (under 15 miles).  For historic pottery, it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish between the two tribes, since Acoma wares were often sold to tourists at the more accessible Laguna Pueblo, which had a train stop there. Acoma Pueblo, on the other hand, is located high atop a 357-foot tall mesa and is often called “Sky City.”
