Caption

This is one of the oldest and most famous of all the Indian Pueblos. Long before the white man dreamed of land beyond the Atlantic, the Indians built 'skyscrapers' of which Taos is the best surviving example. The Indians are stalwart, very conservative and little affected by contact with white men. Nearby is the town of Taos, home and burial place of Kit Carson, and seat of the famous Taos Art Colony.
