Continuing the Traditions
Along the Rio Grande, Pueblo people continue to live and adapt with oral traditions and beliefs connecting them with their ancestors.

This Place Knows Us
"We have learned from our ancestors how to honor the land. As Pueblo people we carry on what our ancestors have taught us. Their songs, stories, and spirits are part of this landscape, and we are the continuation of the story."

Upper Falls

Frijoles Creek drops approximately 80 feet over the Upper Falls. The falls occur where the waters of Frijoles Creek hit the more resistant, dense basalt rock from the neck of an ancient volcano.
