More than a score of these pueblos are scattered over New Mexico. Isleta lies close to the Santa Fe tracks eleven miles west of Albuquerque. The Pueblo Indian is not curious and of the outer world knows little. Many are housed today in the same structures in which their forefathers were discovered and three and a half centuries of contact with the white man has not materially changed their manner of life. The Indian tribes that roamed over mountain and plain have become wards of the Government; the Pueblo Indian has absolutely maintained his individuality, self-respecting and self-supporting.
