Blue Lake[edit]

Need more about history and about the recovery of Blue Lake.

I added a book reference and info about an additional transfer of land near Blue Lake Lnmyshkin (talk) 15:13, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Images?[edit]

An anonymous editor added the composite photo below.

It's attractive, but none of the individual photos are captioned, so it's not really encyclopedic as it stands. Plus the composite is a bit busy and repetitious. And this is already an image-heavy article.

I can probably caption most of the pix in the composite when I have time, but this one needs to be incorporated with the other photos, if we decide to keep it. So the image presentation of the article needs some thought -- and pruning. Pete Tillman (talk) 19:53, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

I've pruned down the gallery, and added a note to try to keep it from getting bigger. When I have time, I'll make a Taos Pueblo gallery at Commons, for other photos & images --Pete Tillman (talk) 21:11, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

As a member the Taos Pueblo Tribe. I feel that it is wrong to state that we practice the Native American church because WE DO NOT PRACTICE NATIVE AMERICAN CHURCH! that is the Navajo and Apache tribes! NOT US! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.160.57.17 (talk) 00:15, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

The Taos Pueblo web site says "ancient Indian religious rites" are still practiced. howcheng {chat} 20:49, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
Which are indeed not the same as the Native American Church, which is a peyote practice. I will attempt to correct the article. Yworo (talk) 22:03, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

File:Ansel Adams - National Archives 79-AA-Q01 restored.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Ansel Adams - National Archives 79-AA-Q01 restored.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on December 12, 2012. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2012-12-12. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 20:49, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the day
Taos Pueblo church

Front view of the entrance to Mission de San Geronimo church at Taos Pueblo, an ancient pueblo belonging to a Taos (Northern Tiwa) speaking Native American tribe of Pueblo people. It is approximately 1,000 years old and lies about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the modern city of Taos, New Mexico. The church was originally built around 1620, but was destroyed several times. The current building (pictured) is the fourth to be built. Today, about 90% of the Taos community are baptized as Catholics, but many still also practice their indigenous religion.

Confusing[edit]

Article has a clear conflict when stating the age of the Taos Pueblo. First it states is is 1000 years old (and the oldest continual inhabited community in US---which it is not; Oraibi on Hopi REservation is). Then, it states the Tiwa people migrated to Taos in 13th century and built the pueblo. That would be 1200 AD (CE) and would make the pueblo circa 800 years old. Feel the article needs to take care of the conflict and add correct facts. If Tiwa people state it is 1000years old in their oral tradition, then the article needs to state so...

Would be best to state that the Tiwa People or Taos People participate in two religions -- Catholicism and their traditional Taos Religions simotaneously. Also, if only 90 percent are baptized Catholic, what religion do the other 10 per cent practice? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.41.0.38 (talk) 21:56, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Water[edit]

The river running through the pueblo serves as the primary source for drinking and cooking water for the residents of the village. In the winter, the river never completely freezes although it does form a heavy layer of ice. Because the river moves so swiftly, the ice can be broken to obtain the fresh water beneath.

It is not referenced and anyway I have spent too much time at the water machines at nearby Cids and Smiths discussing water with Pueblo residents to know that the stream is not the "primary source for drinking and cooking water" any more. I am happy to be corrected by editors with deeper insights. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 14:25, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
