The Pueblo V Era (AD 1600 to present) is the final period of ancient pueblo culture in the American Southwest, or Oasisamerica, and includes the contemporary Pueblo peoples. From the previous Pueblo IV Era, all 19 of the Rio Grande valley pueblos remain in the contemporary era. The only remaining pueblo in Texas is Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, and the only remaining pueblos in Arizona are maintained by the Hopi Tribe. The rest of the Pueblo IV pueblos were abandoned by the 19th century.
The Pueblo V Era (Pecos Classification) is similar to the "Regressive Pueblo Period."
Considerable change occurred during the Pueblo V Era due to Spanish colonization of the Americas beginning in the 16th century and the United States westward expansion of the 19th and 20th centuries. These influences resulted in:
- Population decline due to European diseases
- Efforts to secure traditional Pueblo lands by the Europeans and other Native American tribes
- Establishment of Indian reservations
The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center notes, "Today, Pueblo people live in the modern world while maintaining their distinct culture and rich traditional heritage."
