"Pueblo" is a Spanish word meaning village or people. The Taos Indians built this pueblo over 600 years ago, using sun-dried mud and straw called "adobe". Many families lived and worked here together in a close-knit community, successfully raising crops in this arid region of the United States. Taos Pueblo has been home to descendants of the original builders ever since. Except for the stair-ladders, the pueblo's design may remind you of a modern apartment building with its many connecting units and levels.
