Indian Burial Ground

Taos Pueblo Village, Taos, New Mexico

One of the cool places we visited in New Mexico this year was the Taos Pueblo Village. It is estimated to be over 1,000 years old and belongs to the Taos Pueblo Native American tribe. As we walked around the pueblo and listened to our Indian guide, it was hard not to feel the spirituality of the Pueblo culture. This was all too true for me as I wandered off and found this ancient cemetery. The simplicity of these grave markers spoke to me and I wondered how many have been buried here over the past 1,000 years.
