Pueblo Proverbs

Never sleep while your meat is cooking on the fire.

People seeking a myth will usually find one.

We are grateful to the Mother Earth.

I add my breath to your breath that we shall be as one people.

Native American Wisdom

The Pueblo have lived in the same location longer than any other people in the US or Canada. They are descendants of a group called the Anasazi, who are known to have built multistory buildings as early as the 700s. By the 1300s, the Pueblo lived in the Rio Grande valleys.

The Pueblo were very religious and ceremonial, and they emphasized the ideal of building harmony with the universe. Many current Pueblo have retained much of the attributes of ancient Pueblo lifestyle. Subdivisions of the Pueblo include the Zuni and the Hopi.
