Pueblo Nations - Eight Centuries of Pueblo Indian History is a unique history of the nineteen Indian Pueblos of New Mexico told by noted Jemez Pueblo writer and historian, Joe Sando. The history begins with an introduction to the Pueblo as a Nation within a Nation. The author continues with the traditional history of the Pueblo People. The next major period is first contact with the Spanish and the subsequent Pueblo Revolt. After the Spanish, the United States' role in Pueblo history is explained through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and the Taos controversy. The Pueblo struggle for land, water and survival is recounted in the discussion of the Pueblo Lands Act. The author traces Pueblo history up to the Columbus Quincentenary in 1992. Additional information is provided in a biographical section about nine people who shaped Pueblo history. The author combines traditional oral narratives with archival sources to produce a highly readable account of the nineteen Pueblos (Acoma, Cochiti, Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, Nambe, Picuris, Pojoaque, Sandia, San Felipe, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Ana, Santa Clara, Santo Domingo, Taos, Tesuque, Zia, and Zuni). The book is well illustrated with black and white photographs, as well as maps. There is an extensive bibliography and helpful index.
