Faded Pueblos: of the Tiguex War


Faded Pueblos: of the Tiguex War

This 111-page illustrated book describes about a dozen Tiwa Pueblo villages on both sides of the Rio Grande near Albuquerque, N.M., that resisted the Coronado expedition in pitched battles over the winter of 1540–41 in America's first named Indian war. That was followed by guerrilla warfare the following winter until the Spaniards retreated to Mexico in early 1542. 

Described are the locations, culture, religion, and history of those pueblos and other Pueblo villages in New Mexico.

Printed in black-and-white inside with a color cover, this illustrated paperback is available for purchase in Sun Father's Gift Shop at the Coronado Historic Site , and in the gift shops at Petroglyph National Monument and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Of course, it's also for sale online at Amazon.
