Taos Pueblo

Taos Pueblo is the ancient town of the Northern Tiwa speaking tribe of Pueblo people, Native Americans. It lies about one mile north of modern Taos, New Mexico on the Rio Pueblo, a small stream which flows from the Sangre de Christo Range. 95 thousand acres are attached to the pueblo; about 2000 people live there. In their own language the name of Taos is Tua-tah which means "our village."

Taos is a multi-storied complex of reddish-brown adobe divided into two parts by the Rio Pueblo.
