“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
The village of Acoma is the oldest continually inhabited village in the United States (over 800 years). In 1540, it was Coronado’s expedition who first laid European eyes on the Acoma Pueblo and their people.
The clash came 58 years later in 1598 (Spanish colonization). Legend has it that the Acoma people invited the Spanish in with a promise of food and shelter, then orchestrated an ambush.
