Santa Fe in Santa Fe County, New Mexico — The American Mountains (Southwest)
The Courtyard of Catua and Omtua
This courtyard is dedicated to Catua and Omtua, two messengers from the Pueblo of Tesuque (Taytsugeh Oweengeh) who were captured and executed by Spanish authorities. Their execution led, in part, to the start of the Great Pueblo Revolt which began on August 10, 1680. This was what has been called the “First American Revolution.” All the pueblos in the area united to resist slavery and and to ensure their survival.
This courtyard ress on the ancient settlement of Oga Poegeh, the ancestral home of Taytsugeh Oweengeh.
Today, Taytsugeh Oweengeh and the City of Santa Fe continue to share history and to celebrate the cultural richness of New Mexico.
