Pueblo Revolt Anniversary Commemoration
The Pueblo Revolt of 1680 was a revolution against Spanish religious, economic, and political institutions imposed upon the Pueblos. It is the only successful Native uprising against a colonizing power in North America, keeping the Spanish out of New Mexico for 12 years and establishing a different power dynamic when the Spanish returned.
The Pueblo Revolt holds great historical significance because it helped ensure the survival of Pueblo cultural traditions, lands, languages, religions, and sovereignty. We will commemorate this important milestone in Pueblo history with in-person and virtual events:
