The Pueblo of Pojoaque was one of 19 pueblos in New Mexico impacted by the Spaniards who traveled north along El Camino Real starting in 1598. The exhibits take you across time: from Pueblo life before 1598 to 80 years of Spanish influence to the Pueblo Revolt to Pueblo culture today. You can read the exhibits at www.nps.gov/elca/historyculture/exhibits.htm

Tens of thousands of churro sheep were brought north from Mexico into New Mexico along El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro during the Spanish colonial era. These flocks contributed to the colonial economy by supplying meat, hides, tallow, and wool for northern New Mexico's renowned woven goods.
