Additional Details:
The picturesque pueblo of Laguna lies 66 miles west of Albuquerque, New Mexico, on the Santa Fe. It was founded in 1699 by refugee Indians from Acoma, Zuni and Cochiti. It was called by the Spaniards, San Josef de la Laguna. Several great battles were fought here in early days with the Navahos and Apaches. The Laguna Indians also occupy several smaller villages near by-Paquate, Negra, Encinal and Casa Blanca. Perched on a high rock near the railroad track, Laguna today is a peaceful village of one thousand Indian pottery makers, farmers, sheep-owners and their families. A wagon road leads south to the Enchanted Mesa and Acoma.
