Pueblo Revolt.jpeg

 

 

I used this book as the main source of information for my column about the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. It's well-written and easy to follow for a lay person. There's also lots of descriptions of the modern-day pueblos from the author's personal experience. I also got information from several websites, including New Mexico History.

Most of the info about the revolt comes from Spanish documents written about the time of the revolt, or shortly afterward. Little has come from the oral histories from the Pueblos where the revolt initiated, either because there is little oral history about the events, or the Natives at the Pueblos are reluctant to share their stories.

ABOUT ME

I retired as editorial page editor of The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, Colorado in 2014. Since then, I've continued to write a twice-a-month history column for the Sentinel, while seizing every opportunity I can, with my wife Judy or my horses, to enjoy the beautiful outdoors of the Colorado Plateau.
