Tesuque Pueblo 1956
There are eight pueblos in the area from Santa Fe to Taos. Perhaps Taos Pueblo is the best known (see "Sightseeing" under ACTIVITIES section), but others have had famous potters or dances,etc. In the summer they combine to hold a large fair with merchandise from all over which is quite interesting. The map shows their several locations. Information on their ancestral Anasazis is treated in Bandelier and the "Archeology "section of ADVENTURE. For a contemporary account see Alphoso Ortiz, The Tewa World.

All the pueblos have arts and crafts available on site. All but Taos and San Ildefonso have camping facilities; all but Taos and Pojoaque have fishing.
