Community Life Through the Paintings of Pablita Velarde
"This period of my life at Bandelier….I have learned more about my own people…and I appreciate what the old ones have tried to pass on…I want the earth to remember me through my work." — Tse Tsan, Pablita Velarde
Much of what is known about the community roles, daily life, languages, and traditions of the Ancestral Pueblo people has been learned from Pueblo people today. Their stories, their continued traditions, and their knowledge of this landscape have been passed on to them by their ancestors.
