Pueblo/Puebloan Community

The Pueblo villages of New Mexico drew many filmmakers with many agendas. Educational, travel, and sponsored filmmakers alike sought out the centuries-old multi-story pueblo at Taos and the ubiquitous hornos or ovens as focal or background elements. Some focused on specific villages, while others treated the villages as indistinguishable and homogeneous.  In New Mexico, in particular, original film narrators sometimes collapsed the distinction between descendants of originary inhabitants and Spanish insurgents.
