Summary

The Zuni have occupied their territory in New Mexico for many hundreds of years, developing their contemporary culture from prehistoric societies. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Zuni lands were invaded by Spanish forces, but the Spanish were never able to exert complete control over them. When New Mexico became a territory of the United States, American officials also tried to impose educational and religious policies in an attempt to alter their culture. Despite many changes in their lives and circumstances, the Zuni have been unusually successful in retaining their indigenous social systems and values, their traditional religious beliefs and practices, and their language. In The Zuni, learn about this resilient people's history, their interactions with Europeans and the U.S. government, and their place in American society today.
