Salt, Societies, and Spirituality: A Tale of Diverse Cultures.

Tucked away in the middle of New Mexico you’ll find Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument.  Its three distinct sites offer a glimpse into a unique time in history—a time entrenched with cultural borrowing, conflict and struggles.  These sites continue to stand as reminders of the Spanish and Pueblo peoples’ early encounters and prompt exploration of today’s interactions among different people.
