There are over 1900 Taos Indians living on Taos Pueblo lands. Our people have a detailed oral history which is not divulged due to religious privacy. Archaeologists say that ancestors of the Taos Indians lived in this valley long before Columbus discovered America and hundreds of years before Europe emerged from the Dark Ages. Ancient ruins in the Taos Valley indicate our people lived here nearly 1000 years ago. We welcome visitors, we ask that you respect the pueblo rules and guidelines.
