Acoma Pueblo

Also known as "Sky City", Acoma is a Native American pueblo standing atop of a 367-foot sandstone mesa in New Mexico, between the modern day cities of Albuquerque on the east, and Gallup, on the west. Built perhaps in the 1100s, Acoma is one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. By community vote, people live as they did hundreds of years ago, without benefit of electricity or modern plumbing. Water is collected in a series of cisterns. Each home is heated by adobe fireplace.

Acoman artisans are known for their distinctive black on white pottery and we met several on our tour of the ancient village.
