Kewa Pueblo, formerly known as Santo Domingo Pueblo (Eastern Keres: Kewa), is an Indian pueblo and a census-designated place (CDP) in Sandoval County, New Mexico, in the United States. The pueblo is located approximately 25 miles (40 km) southwest of Santa Fe, 4 miles west of Interstate 25. 

The population of the pueblo is composed of Native Americans who speak an eastern dialect of the Keresan languages.

The Pueblo celebrates an annual feast day on August 4 to honor their patron saint, St. Dominic, where more than 2,000 pueblo people participate in traditional corn dances. The Spanish Conquistadores had given the name “Santo Domingo” to the pueblo in the 1600s, but the earliest recorded name was Gipuy. According to Pueblo Council members the local name has always been “Kewa”. In 2009, the pueblo officially changed its name to Kewa Pueblo.
