New Mexico: San Felipe
The San Felipe Pueblo lies at the base of the Santa Ana Mesa where the Indians here once lived. They were forced to the banks of the Rio Grande by marauding Apache's where the present day village is.
Today the community is a timeless village that must be much like it was 200 years ago. It is easily one of the most picturesque locales of any pueblo village. The San Felipe people are considered the most conservative of the Keresan speaking pueblos.
Nearly 2,600 people live at the San Felipe Pueblo today. Agriculture and mining, along with pottery making, are the mainstays of the economy. Most of the people here have retained and speak the Keresan language.
