I’m staying here again and again and again. It’s easy, romantic, and my kind of Santa Fe. R&M Kutsch- Massachusetts
A Brief Background of the Taos People
Taos Indians have lived in the Taos Valley of New Mexico for over 800 years. When the Spanish arrived in Taos Valley in 1540, they believed that they had found the fabled golden city of Cibola. The pueblos that the Taos live in are made of adobe. This is earth mixed with water and straw then formed into bricks and dried. The Taos have always been a religious people viewing their spirituality as a way of establishing harmony with the universe. The Taos pueblo are proud and fiercely independent. They have for years enforced a policy that forbids marriage outside the Pueblo. This has served to maintain the bloodline of this people. Their strong sense of community has also maintained their sense of tribal identity. The people have a tradition of secrecy which has kept many of their sacred beliefs and customs from the outside world. Taos Pueblo today stands as the largest surviving multistoried Pueblo structure in the United States.
