  Taos Pueblo
by leafmcgowan

"The First Living World Heritage". The original Taos Pueblo home and village. Many consider this Pueblo to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the U.S. Seasonally there are events, ceremonies, and dances showing our history still active today. Many different arts and craft businesses out of each of the Pueblo homes. They still speak their native language of Tiwa which they claim will remain unwritten and unrecorded. The details of their traditional values they guard and will not divulge. They welcome visitors so a taste of their life can be seen by the visitors. The courtyard holds a small Adobe Catholic church. Each house have clay pit ovens. An intriguing cemetery off to the side around a desolate ruin surrounded by wooden crosses. A river running through the center of the plaza. Its worth a visit and to see, however, its a bit pricey, $10 entrance and $5 camera fee.
