Historical Context
The Taos Pueblo peoples have inhabited the land of northern New Mexico, separate from the now established town of Taos, for nearly 1000 years. Taos Pueblo is a sovereign nation within the United States and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The community is one of eight Northern Pueblos but is uniquely known for being very private. While their lengthy oral history cannot be shared with outsiders, the site itself is available for tourists to learn about the historic and grand pueblo structures made out of adobe—earth mixed with water and straw.
