Jaelynn is a 17 year-old member of the Taos Pueblo tribe.  She took us on a tour of the Pueblo.  Here, she explains the use of the adobe "beehive" ovens.

And here, Jaelynn talks about the importance of the river behind her, which is the tribe's source of water.  Its source is Blue Lake, 11,000 ft up in the mountains. The lake is sacred to the tribe. For most of the 20th century, Blue Lake was controlled by the U.S. Forest Service as a recreation area.  In 1970, the lake was returned to tribal control.

Here's a view of a Pueblo house with the mountains behind. I liked this one in both B&W and color, so I made it both ways.

if you're interested, here is an article that describes, from the tribe's point of view, their struggle to regain Blue Lake.
