http://www.indians.org/articles/pueblo-indians.html The Pueblos are natives of the Southwestern desert area, but Pueblo culture began in a part of the Southwest called the Mesa Verde region. The Mesa Verde region is located in the Four Corners area of the Southwest. It is called the "Four Corners" because it is the only place in the United States where the corners of four states meet: Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. 750 A.D They hunted for small game such as rabbit, gopher, and squirrel. They also hunted large game such as deer, antelope, and mountain lions. The main crop the Pueblo raised was corn. Corn consisted of 80% of their diet. The Pueblos also grew squash, corn, beans, cotton, tobacco, and sunflowers and had individual family gardens, in which they grew peppers, onions, chilies, and tobacco. In This Prezi Arianna and Shavon will show you what they have learned about the pueblo people. http://img.ehowcdn.com/article-new/ehow/images/a06/vt/u2/american-indian-foods-1.1-800x800.jpg


Thank You For Your time! Pueblo Indian Art Pueblo Homes The Pueblo Indians built houses out of wood, adobe, stone, and dirt, with a wooden roof covered with mud plaster.Their houses were built up to five stories, and ladders were used for some of them. were called "Pueblos" -the Spanish word for "town"-, and were useful for hot weather, because they kept the inside of the house cool. Religion The Pueblo Indians are a proud and highly talented tribe, and ceremonies celebrating their culture and history are performed on a regular basis. These ceremonies are important to the elder Pueblo Indians, as they see it as a way to instill pride and a sense of history in younger members of their tribe. Clothing They wove cloth from the cotton they grew, and used animal hides as blankets, aprons, and breechcloths. Men wore breechcloths or kilts and a cloth headband. Women wore dresses called "mantas". Men and women put their hair up into a bun known as a "chongo", and used paint and feathers for religious ceremonies. In the past, the Pueblo Indians had a theocratic government. That means that the head priest or cacique (pronounced kah-seek) was also the town chief. Today, each Pueblo still has its own cacique, but he is primarily a religious leader. Most Pueblos are now led by an elected governor and tribal council.
