Additional Details:
Thirteen miles west of Albuquerque, New Mexico is the Indian Pueblo of Isleta (Little Island). One of the very striking features of this pueblo is the old church. It is easily distinguished by the two immense bell towers. Notwithstanding the presence of a well preserved church and the constant attendance of a priest, Isleta still possesses an estufa, or native temple in which certain ancient religious observances are retained
