Taos Pueblo | Taos New Mexico Travel
Bread is still baked in outdoor domed ovens called "hornos", just as their ancestores did. You will get a fascinating glimpse into the past as you observe the tribe in surroundings that have remained mostly unchanged for years.
Frequent ceremonies, pow wows, and feast days are sometimes open to the public, however generally photography and sketching is prohibited.
The artisians of Taos Pueblo make some beautiful handcrafted jewelery and pottery. You will also find tanned buckskin moccasins and drums. The silver and turquoise jewelry ranges from touristy items to very fine art. Taos Pueblo pottery is mostly the mica-flecked black pottery so desirable today.
The Pueblo closes for six weeks in the spring, as well as for religious days and funerals, etc., so you should call ahead to check on the timing of your visit. Tours are available and a really good way to get all the stories and history first hand... well worth the extra charge.(505) 758-1028
