Additional Details:
Tesuque is situated on the left bank of the Tesuque River, a few miles north of Santa Fe and numbers about one hundred inhabitants. The town is quadrangular in shape, about 240 feet long and 150 feet wide. The houses rise to a height of two stories, entrance to the second floor being by means of a ladder from the street. The women still prepare their meals on the primitive metates, there being in many houses three or four compartment mealing bins, where corn is ground between two stones. Their pottery comprises little images, Rain Gods, and curious animal forms
