Pueblo Nations is the story of a vital and creative culture, of a people sustained by ages-old traditions and beliefs who have adapted to the radical challenges of the modern world. Written by a respected writer, educator, and elder of the Jemez Pueblo, this rare, insider's view of the history of the 19 Indian Pueblos of New Mexico illuminates Pueblo historical traditions dating from millennia before the arrival of Columbus and chronicles the events and changes of the European era from the perspective of those who experienced them. This book is a vital and nuanced resource for students, scholars, teachers and anyone interested in Native American history.
