Background – Isleta People
Isleta means “Little Island” in Spanish, but Isleta Pueblo is hardly little having 21,002 acres and a population over 3,000. Isleta has had a troubled history. When the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 began, many members fled to Hopi settlements in Arizona. After the rebellion was over, many returned bring Hopi-mates and half-Hopi children. The language is generally Tiwa with most people speaking English. Agriculture is the principle occupation of the Isleta people. Additional revenue is derived from land leased to local business concerns and to the United States Government. Recent revival of pottery making is giving work to a number of artisians such as the well known Chiwiwi family. Embrodery and jewelry are also experiencing a revival. Isleta is known for its bread.
