Joe and Angie ReanoJoe and Angie Reano are full blooded Native American Indians born into Santo Domingo Pueblo. Their designs include extraordinary inlay work. They were blessed with natural talent and their Awards include: 1993 Santa Fe Indian Market 3rd Place; 1998 Santa Fe Indian Market 2nd Place; 1996 Santa Fe Indian Market 3rd Place. I have had the great pleasure to meet them and buy from them directly.
In 2009, Santo Domingo Pueblo's tribal council decided to change the pueblo's name back to the
ancestral name Kewa Pueblo (pronounced KEE-wah)
