New Mexico Art Tells its History

Landscape and Environment

The roots of the earliest “New Mexicans,” the current day Puebloans of the Rio Grande valley, can be traced to two of three groups referred to as the Desert People. These nomadic people of the ancient hunting and gathering life occupied different environmental regions and changed location with the seasonal movement of game and the ripening of wild plant life.
