Another New Mexico Pueblo returns to traditional name
Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico is now officially using its traditional name.

The tribe changed its seal to read Kewa Pueblo. "Historically, that's our name," Everett Chavez, the tribe's former governor, told The Santa Fe New Mexican . "Everybody knows us as Kewa. It's just going back to our original name."

The state has recognized the change and will name the new stop on the Rail Runner Express as Kewa Pueblo Station. The All Indian Pueblo Council, which represents the 19 Pueblos in New Mexico and one in Texas, also acknowledged the change.

San Juan Pueblo started using its traditional name, Ohkay Owingeh, a few years ago.
