Pueblo Profiles

Cultural Identity Through Centuries of Change

by Joe S Sando

In his new book, Joe S. Sando weaves a tapestry of individual lives against a backdrop of history -- telling the stories of political leaders, educators, and artists who took part in the events and movements that have shaped Pueblo Indian life from the time of the Pueblo Revolt to the present day. The author, who was born and raised at Jemez Pueblo, is a recognized authority and respected writer on Pueblo history. Sando's gripping history of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 includes both the early Spanish accounts and the orally transmitted information that has been carefully preserved in the Pueblos since the seventeenth century. His biographies of twentieth-century leaders document a history of continuing assaults on Native American dignity and sovereignty. More importantly, they highlight the creative responses that enable the Pueblos to preserve their identity within the dominant culture, while moving with the times.
