Additional Details:
The Church, Facing West toward the village. The festivals of the Pueblo Indians are quite interesting. Each pueblo has its Saint's Day, which is celebrated with appropriate ceremonies. When Coronado came to New Mexico with his soldiers he found a resident people of frugal and industrious habits, civilized in a way, who tilled the soil and dwelt in great houses made of stones and sun-dried mud. The Spanish word "pueblo" means a village or a people, and these natives, as well as their curious houses, have ever since been generally known by the name casually applied to them by their Spanish discoverers, although among themselves they are known by their tribal name.
