The Pueblo Revolt of 1680 was a revolution against the harsh subjugation of the Pueblos by the Spanish. It is the only successful Native uprising against a colonizing power in North America.
The revolt that took place on August 10, 1680 kept the Spanish out of New Mexico for 12 years, and led to a different power dynamic upon their return. The Pueblo revolt holds great historical significance by ensuring the survival of Pueblo culture.
Each year on the anniversary of this event, the IPCC hosts a celebration of Pueblo Culture through dance, arts, and education. Check out our Events Calendar in August for more details.
