Sandoval County Commission Vice Chairman Joshua Madalena said the Fourth Annual Pueblo Independence Day Celebration at the Jemez State Monument offers opportunities for people throughout the region to enjoy modern and ancient cultures during one of New Mexico's most historic days.
The celebration will be held on Sunday, August 12, at the monument on NM 4 in Jemez Springs. The event is cosponsored by the monument and the Pueblo of Jemez. Admission is free for New Mexico residents and children under age seventeen.
"This is a chance for people of all cultures to enjoy relaxing and historic events commemorating the Pueblo Revolt of 1680," said Madalena, manager of Jemez State Monument and County Commissioner for District 5, which includes the Jemez Mountains and much of rural Sandoval County.
"The entire day has fun-filled events highlighting one of our State's most historic days in one of our region's most scenic areas," Madalena said.
"Included will be guided tours of the Jemez State Monument, including the ancient and authentically-restored Giusewatowa kiva. We also will have the grand opening of the recently stabilized nave and sacristy of the historic San Jose de los Jemez church," Madalena said.

"It's a short and very scenic drive from the Albuquerque area to the Jemez Springs area," Madalena said.

From the fiery alchemy of volcanic ash, pumice and basalt come the whispers of the ancestors.
Former Jemez Pueblo governor Joshua Madalena has recaptured an art form lost for 300 years: the pueblo's original black-on-white pottery.

Visitors to the adobe home Madalena built 18 years ago see a mammoth 24- by 22-inch black-on-white corn vase perched on a foyer pedestal. A smaller bowl cradles cornmeal for prayer. Half a dozen jars and bowls, large and small, embellish the dining room table.
A self-taught archaeologist who served as pueblo governor in 2010, 2012 and 2014, Madalena was a Sandoval County commissioner from 2004 to 2008.
He also worked as a special research assistant to the pueblo archaeologist. The pair traveled the world, while Madalena absorbed information and techniques.
The distinctive black-on-white pottery thrived from 1300 to 1700. It vanished with the Spanish reconquest.
"We were oppressed," Madalena said.

Madalena climbed those mesas as part of his research.
"I would ask the ancestors permission to take a pottery shard," he said.

Then he discovered the original mine on a mesa top near the village.
He spiraled the clay into a pot using the traditional coil method, added a white slip, then polished his first piece with a stone.
He gleaned paint formulas from his grandmother, known as one of the finest storytellers at Jemez: a combination of roots and bee weed, boiled and extracted to the consistency of molasses.
"It's kind of like painting with honey," he said. "It's sticky."
The straight lines, triangles and animal motifs reflect pictographs and petroglyphs as well as ancient pottery shards.
"They would paint their desires, their hopes, their wants," Madalena explained, "like courage, unity, mountains, the stories of elders. I consider it like an encyclopedia because it gives you information from the past."
Traditional pit firing would prove even more difficult.
"I probably broke over 200 pieces of pottery," Madalena said.

Today he smothers the pottery with dirt.
He took his first pieces for a talk at the 2009 Santa Fe Indian Market. In 2012, he won the Lifetime Achievement Allen Houser Legacy Award from the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts, the market's umbrella organization. He also took the First Place Award for pottery.

Madalena hopes the findings encourage other pueblo people to rediscover the pottery. His 2-year-old grandson Liam already has his hands in the clay.
"No pottery that has been made in the last 100 years has done what we've done," he said.
